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.
