Listen to an extract:



John Nicholson Ireland, (1879 – 1962), was a pianist and composer mostly of piano and choral works. The grandest piece he wrote was his piano concerto which has lapsed from the repertoire at the moment. He is probably best known for his orchestral work, The Holy Boy, a setting of John Masefield’s Sea Fever, the hymn tune Love Unknown and the motet, Greater Love Hath No Man. The latter is set here for a modern wind quintet and the dynamics are a guide so scope is allowed for performers to annotate their parts to suit their performance. Although parts are provided for clarinet in B flat and A, the part is best performed on an A clarinet as the original key of B major means a difficult key for the B flat clarinet.
