Ina Boyle is finally gaining recognition as a leading Irish composer of the early 20th Century. Her huge body of work, largely unperformed, sits in manuscript in the Library of Trinity College, Dublin. Living quietly in rural Ireland, Boyle travelled regularly to London for lessons with her mentor Vaughan Williams. Cut off from London musical life by the Second World War she saw performances of her work dwindle. In 1960, Janet Baker's debut Wigmore Hall recital included a work by Boyle. 60 years later, Ina Boyle songs return to Wigmore Hall.
