Hinged largely on the material from O'Connor's 2002 album of traditional Irish songs, "Sean-Nós Nua," this 150-minute DVD is a fitting farewell from the singer, who retired from music in July. The disc begins with a recent concert in her hometown of Dublin—an engaging, intimate performance before an enthusiastic house. But it's the extras that make this DVD special. In addition to videos of six songs from "Sean-Nós Nua" performed in a rustic setting, the disc features a revealing documentary on the making of the album. Album co-producers Adrian Sherwood and Donal Lunny, Irish singing legend Christy Moore, musician friends and O'Connor herself offer insights into the inscrutable singer and her work. Arriving at the same time is the artist's two-CD set from Vanguard, "She Who Dwells . . . ," which features rare and unreleased studio material, along with a live disc.—AZ
