John Irelandís piano music, some of the most appealing British piano music of the twentieth century, reflects the composerís many interests: his love of literature, his interest in paganism and Celtic mysticism, as well as the bitter-sweet regret of the passing of love.

This recording includes Irelandís Piano Sonata, whose third movement is associated with Chanctonbury Ring on the Sussex South Downs, and the four Preludes, the third of which, 'The Holy Boy', written on Christmas Day 1913, is one of Irelandís most popular and touching melodies.

ďJohn Lenehan is a very accomplished performer: not only is his technical address impeccable, but he also possesses a strikingly wide dynamic range and sophisticated variety of tone colour......Lenehan's supremely affectionate and wonderfully articulate advocacy will surely win John Ireland many new friendsĒ - Gramophone on Vol.1
