Forthcoming Books
Posted: 18 August 2006

Ashgate Publishing are to publish two forthcoming books which relate to Alan Bush.

The Correspondence of Alan Bush and John Ireland 1927-1961 compiled by Rachel O'Higgins.

John Ireland (1879-1962) had a long and close friendship with Alan Bush (1900-1995) which lasted for forty years, from 1922 when John Ireland was already forty years old, until Ireland's death in 1962. There are 160 letters in the collection, which are published for the first time and provide a compelling and engaging narative, but also a unique insight into the musical and day-to-day lives of the two men. The letters were written during a most interesting and turbulent period in British history: the inter-war period of the 1920s and 30s, the situation during the Second World War and the post-war era. The volume will therefore appeal to those interested in wider aspects of British musical llife and social and political history, as well as followers of Bush and Ireland.

The book will be published in November 2006 and will cost £59.50 in hardback. It can be pre-ordered directly from Ashgate Publishing.
