A study of composer Samuel Barber's work, traced though the Irish-language poet Anthony Raftery (1779-1835), and how the real lives of Mary Hynes and Anthony O'Daly inspired Raftery's songs, how Lady Gregory's research and Douglas Hyde's fine Hiberno-English translations gave birth to the poems of James Stephens which, in turn, inspired Barber's sensitive musical settings.
The author, Professor Emeritus Ron Jeffers, served as associate professor and director of choral activities at Oregon State University from 1974-1982, and as associate professor of theory & composition from 1982-1998.
