Ireland, John: The Land of Lost Content (A Shropshire Lad) and other Songs


John Ireland’s songs played a vital part in the renaissance of English art song, and this volume includes one of his most memorable contributions – a set of six well contrasted songs giving at once a fine opportunity for singer and pianist, technically and artistically, and providing a rare example of rapport between composer and poet, and of the enhancement of his music of poems already lyrically beautiful in their own right.
