About this CD
This recording - the first of a projected series under the general title: Music in 18th Century Ireland - has been grant-aided by The Arts Council.

here wasa thriving musical life in Ireland during the 18th century, focussed on Dublin, at that time the world's second largest English-speaking city, but spreading also throughout the country. In this milieu many native composers flourished and many foreign musicians visited and often settled here. It is hoped to reflect this ferment of musical activity and wealth of creative energy in this series of recordings.

Daniel Roseingrave came to Dublin in 1698 as Organist of Christ Church and St. Patrick's Cathedrals. His son, Ralph succeeded him at both Cathedrals, while his other son, Thomas achieved considerable fame in London as a composer and musician , (and some notoriety as an eccentric!) All three died in Dublin: Daniel in 1727, Ralph in 1747 and Thomas in 1766. Between them they produced many notable and worthwhile compositions.
