Traditional Music in the Irish Revival
Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceeding › Chapter
The chapter reflects on the interconnections of musical and literary nationalism in late nineteenth century Ireland, discussing work by Eagleton, Kiberd, and Hutchinson. I give a musical context for what Kiberd has called "the national longing for form" which characterised this period, and juxtapose this public discourse with the remarkable developments of vernacular music making which were to fuel the later explosion of traditional Irish music in the 1960s.
