Aloys Fleischmann was born in Munich to Irish-based German parents. He was Professor of Music in University College Cork from 1934 to 1980. He produced many papers and articles on a wide variety of music-related subjects & this work ‘Music in Ireland: A Symposium’ is regarded as a seminal survey of the state of music in the country at the time.
Arnold Bax (1883 – 1953) was an English composer and author. Discovering Yeats’s ‘The Wanderings of Oisín’ began a love affair with Ireland that would last a lifetime. He adopted the pseudonym Dermot O’Byrne after discovering the townland of Glencolmcille in Co. Donegal and for well on 30 years, he would retreat there in search of inspiration.
