John Ireland was an English composer and music teacher. His works were made up of piano miniatures and of songs with piano. His famous works encompass the short instrumental or orchestral work The Holy Boy, a framework of the poem Sea-Fever by John Masefield, a once much-played Piano Concerto, the hymn tune Love Unknown, and the choral motet Greater Love Hath No Man.
Ireland spent his education at the Royal College of Music in London, where he later taught composition. He was greatly attracted to the mysticism and fantasy in the works of Arthur Machen.
