John McCormack

John McCormack (1884–1945) was an Irish American tenor renowned for his renditions of sentimental Irish-themed songs. He also possessed a fine operatic voice and worked steadily on the opera stage during the early part of his career. Reportedly, he was a self-admitted poor actor and for this reason chose to focus his career on the concert stage and recording studio. McCormack's voice has been described as being very pure, sweet, and light. He was well known for his interpretations of Mozart, Handel, and German lieder. McCormack's long career as a recording artist extended from 1904 to 1942. He began his association with the Victor Company in 1910.
