English-Irish composer Ernest John "Jack" Moeran (1894-1950) was the son of a Norfolk clergyman of Irish descent. Educated at Uppingham School, he learned violin and played in a string quartet. As he matured, he took a greater interest in his Irish heritage, focusing on County Kerry and the small town of Kenmare.
