Notes & Reviews:

The songs of John Ireland form a major contribution to vocal music during the first half of the 20th century, and encompass a wide variety of styles and moods. This collection of songs is designed to show Ireland's range, including some that are popular and others, such as "Mother and Child," that are rarely performed. Most previous recordings have been made by male singers, and several of the songs presented here are receiving their first recording by a soprano.
