Ina Boyle's choral work 'Wilt Not Thou, Oh God' (1915) will be performed by the Derry Cathedral Choir at St Columb's Cathedral, Derry, in remembrance of the Battle of the Somme in 1916. 

‘Wilt not Thou, O God, go forth with our Hosts’ (Psalms 108, 33) for choir and organ, an Anthem for Intercession, dedicated to the 36th (Ulster) Division, was published by Novello. According to her Memoranda ‘This was to have been sung by the choir of Derry Cathedral but so many of the men went to the war that it could not be given.’ - Dr Ita Beausang 'Ina Boyle and World war I'
