Séamas de Barra is a composer and a musicologist.

‘His deep influence on music in Ireland continues to this day, and this meticulously researched book will be welcomed by all who wondered

about the details of his life … a labour of love … it is its own cornucopia, and de Barra is generous in his treatment of a generous subject.’

—Mícheál Ó Súilleabháin, The Journal of Music in Ireland
