Title: John Ireland
Post by: greek on May 14, 2022, 01:43:49 am
John Ireland was born at Bowdon, Cheshire, in 1879.

He was much in sympathy with Machen's pagan mysticism, which is reflected in a number of works, notably the orchestral poem The Forgotten Rite from 1913. It was performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Sir Adrian Cedric Boult.
