CHURCH TIMESBR> Any reader interested in the music of John Ireland will find this book a marvellous source of information (...) handsomely illustrated and beautifully produced. RALPH VAUGHAN WILLIAMS SOCIETY JOURNAL In this substantial hardback, Ireland himself is brought to life through sympathetic explanations and pertinent recollections as well as exhaustive listings of repertoire and recordings (...)

INTERNATIONAL RECORD REVIEW The present volume takes a vitally important place in the relatively sparse bibliographical catalogue of John Ireland's life and music.

The content ranges from newly written chapters by 'various writers of today' alongside reprints of material that has already been published but may be hard to locate - even in the digital age. (...) This book is essential reading for all enthusiasts of John Ireland's music in particular and British music in general. MUSIC WEB INTERNATIONAL (John France)
