J Robert Sheehan singing Danny Boy in the Cathedral

Bob Sheehan broke every bond that tried to hold him.  He had a great love to teaching, for vocal performance (some of which this video captures), for Ireland, and the Church, and of course his family. Bob always had a hearty laugh, some choice swear words, and extended middle-finger, usually jabbed in the air for additional emphasis, for everybody he met--student, administrator, or faculty colleague.  Bob died earlier today--here is the obituary--and is already missed.  At least we have a legacy like this, recorded in Albany's beautiful and under-appreciated Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, to remind us.  Eternal rest and light perpetual, O Lord...
