The Irish poet and antiquary Samuel Ferguson was educated at Trinity College, Dublin. He was called to the bar in 1838 and became a Queen’s Counsellor in 1859. He retired in 1867 when he was appointed deputy-keeper of Irish records, for which he was knighted in 1878. He set his words for ‘The lark in the clear air’ to the traditional Irish air ‘An Trailliur’, performed here in an arrangement by Phyllis Tate.
