In lifelong seclusion in rural County Wicklow, Ina Boyle (1889–1967) created a legacy of song – tender, often melancholy, illuminated by an exquisite sense for harmony.

‘I think it is most courageous of you to go on with such little recognition,’ wrote Vaughan Williams to his pupil. ‘The only thing to say is that it does come finally.’

Amid the 2020 pandemic, Iain Burnside gathered three superb Irish singers at London’s Wigmore Hall. Recorded in less than five hours, the resulting 80 minutes of music unveil a composer who is one of Ireland’s ‘invisible heroines’.

Half a century after Boyle’s death, is Vaughan Williams’s prediction at last coming true?

‘Burnside allures the ear at every turn’ – The Sunday Times, April 2014
