John Igram was much influenced by poetry, in particular the sonnets of Shakespeare and the poems of the English Cavalier poet  Robert Herrick (1591-1674). Ingram spent considerable effort on setting poems to music, including his three-part Herrick’s Garden: Part 1 - Morning in Herrick’s Garden - “gather ye rosebuds while ye may”; “to violets, to carnations” Part 2 - Noon in the garden - “to daffodils, to daisies not to haste wasy so soon” Part 3 Evening in the garden Ingram arranged some of the music from Herrick’s Garden into a shorter work entitled To Musique - Suite for Viola with Pianoforte  and Tenor. The score and audio recordings of this work are accessible below.
