        The Holy Boy is special, and it is good to have other good
        examples.

        When originally written, Ireland's earlier organ music was equally popular in the concert hall as it was in the average church organist’s introductory voluntary repertoire for weddings and other lighter services where music needs to be gentle on the ear. With the revival of interest in Romantic organ music, Ireland's music may well prove similarly popular once again. Beware in performance, however, as clear phrasing is important if things are not to sound muddy and uninteresting.

        Novello's easy-to-read (upright a4 format) collection of Ireland's original works (arrangements excluded) is very good value for money. Editor Robert Gower provides a useful preface with some basic biographical information, and editorial notes with a key to abbreviations. There is a list of suggested registrations for each piece (and many registrations are added in the musical text), although it is not clear how many of these registrations are the composer's original ones.
