The earliest pieces are the Berceuse and the Cavatina dating from 1902 and 1904 respectively and composed when Ireland was in his early twenties in the years immediately after he had graduated from the Royal College of Music. Although both are immature works, they demonstrate the composer’s melodic fluency: the Cavatina is a piece of salon music typical of its period, whereas the Berceuse has a more serious intent, but still shows the influence that Brahms had on Ireland’s earliest compositions.
