We're delighted to welcome you to this new web site featuring information on Irish composer Ina Boyle's music.
A composer whose music has been re-discovered in recent years, Ina Boyle was unique in many respects in being one of the few Irish women composers active during the first half of the twentieth century. Her output features orchestral, vocal and choral and chamber works, many of which have received performances in the past number of years.
The site, which will be maintained by the Contemporary Music Centre (CMC) on behalf of a working group chaired by Katie Rowan, a relative of the Boyle family, will serve as a key information source about her music and will feature updates on performances of her work, as well as other news about her. The working group includes a number of representative people drawn from the Irish classical music sector, including Dr Kerry Houston (DIT Conservatory of Music), composers Nicola LeFanu, David Byers, musicologist Dr Ita Beausang, broadcaster Jane Carty, writer and music critic Ian Fox, Director of the European Opera Centre in Liverpool Kenneth Baird, Jonathan Grimes (Contemporary Music Centre), and Emma O'Keeffe (MPhil DIT Conservatory of Music).
We're delighted that thanks to the support of the Boyle family, her unpublished works will be available to order from the CMC. To view a list of works and see which ones are available in typeset format, please see the compositions section of this site.
