This monograph on Raymond Deane is the first comprehensive study of an Irish composer to appear in his lifetime. Illustrated with musical examples, it combines a lucid survey of Deane’s principal compositions with a highly informative commentary on technical features of his work.
Patrick Zuk is Lecturer in Music at the University of Durham, England. He is completing a new history of the Irish art-music tradition.
‘Patrick Zuk’s new book on Raymond Deane firmly establishes honourable existence in print for one of Ireland’s most significant composers.’
—Barra Boydell, The Journal of Music in Ireland
