The facts behind the Masters of Music
During his five years at the Royal Academy of Music, Bax became interested in the poetry of W.B. Yeats that sparked a love affair with Ireland and Irish and Celtic culture that continued to his last days. He died while in holiday in Cork. Bax himself wrote poetry under the pseudonym Dermot O'Byrne.
