Abstract
  • ‘Out of the cradle endlessly rocking’ is a rhapsody for tenor solo, chorus and orchestra with lyrics from Walt Whitman’s poem of the same title. It was composed by Rhoda Coghill, an Irish musician born in Dublin on 14 October 1903. IE TCD MS 11111/1/2 is the piano score for the rhapsody.Rhoda Coghill was the daughter of Alexander Sinclair Coghill, from Thurso, Scotland, and his wife, Rhoda Ann Sinclair (née Baily). Coghill attended Alexandra School and College in Dublin. Self-taught as a composer, Coghill studied music at TCD with Charles Herbert Kitson, graduating in 1922, and was in Berlin 1927–8 to continue her piano tuition with Artur Schnabel, the Beethoven interpreter. On her return to Ireland she taught at the Read School and played double bass in the Radio Éireann Orchestra. From 1939 to 1968 she was the official accompanist at Radio Éireann. One of the most forward-looking Irish works composed in the first half of the twentieth century, was her rhapsody ‘Out of the cradle endlessly rocking’ for tenor solo, chorus, and orchestra, to a text by Walt Whitman.
