Introduction
John Ireland was born in Cheshire in 1879 and died in Sussex in 1962. He wrote over eighty songs, many of real distinction such as The Holy Boy here recorded in the transcription by David Cameron. It epitomizes Ireland’s craft in using small-scale but memorable musical ideas to great effect. Particularly attractive aspects of Ireland’s personal style are the lucid economy of his writing and his well-respected abilities as an orchestrator.
