Irish Classical Music Pioneers

This Wordpress blog by author Basil Walsh is jam-packed full of useful information about Irish classical music history - including John Stevenson, who was Thomas Moore's arranger. (Whatever Moore achieved with his evocative lyrics, he would not have got the same widespread acclaim without Stevenson's settings.)
