Ireland's complete Piano works are still in Print (Thames).
So they ARE available and I personally would not post Scans of this Edition, which I posess.

Remember guidance on copyright is given on this site - under the 'Welcome to Pianophilia' thread.

Alfor is correct and works currently in print should not be posted on Pianophilia. I know we all like something for free, but we should where possible support music publishers if works are still in print. If in doubt on uploading a file to PP, then feel free to message me.

Does anyone know please where to find a complete chronological list of works by Sir Arthur Somervell? Also, has there ever been a detailed biography written about this composer?

Thank you Fred. I looked in various places for a complete chronological list of every composition, but all I could find was bits-n-bobs. Maybe Somervell would benefit from a researcher to produce a complete catalogue of his works, plus a detailed biography, assuming that whatever information Grove has is somewhat condensed.
