Beautiful Music NOW - Ina Boyle

The Tully Potter Collection

Happy Saint Patrick's Day! Today's Beautiful Music features songs by Ina Boyle, an Irish composer who lived from 1889-1967. Her early musical training was provided by her father and her governess, and she grew into an accomplished composer whose teachers included Ralph Vaughan Williams. Boyle composed a wide variety of works, including opera and ballet, choral, chamber and orchestral music, and more. Soprano Annie Barr McAllister sings some of Ina Boyle's songs from a 2021 concert performance with pianist Sooyeon Back, harpist Janna Young, and violist Judy Huang.

Suzanne Bona is the host and executive producer of Sunday Baroque, a nationally syndicated weekly radio show of Baroque and early music which she originated on WSHU in 1987.
