Ina Boyle's setting of two poems by John Dunne will be performed by Tenor Robin Tritschler as part of the Composing the Island commemorative concerts on Thursday 8th September 2016.
A shared fascination with Ireland, its landscape, language and folk traditions inspired a number of leading Irish and English composers from Frederick May to the ‘master of the king’s music’ Arnold Bax. The result of this can be heard in the pieces being performed in this concert – chamber music and songs from the first decades of the 20th century.
