Havelock Nelson joined the BBC in Belfast in 1947 having been
educated at Trinity College Dublin and the Royal Irish Academy of Music. He conducted
the BBC Northern Ireland Orchestra, the Studio Symphony
Orchestra and the Ulster Singers. His
compositions were legion and included orchestral works, a ballet, a choral
suite and many part-songs, anthems and (particularly) unison songs, song cycles
and other solo songs (like Dirty Work and Love is Cruel).† He also composed piano pieces, including the
Three Irish Diversions, instrumental works like the Cameos for clarinet solo,
incidental music for films and radio and TV plays, and many arrangements of
Irish and other folksongs. Among the more popular of his published miniatures
are popular nursery rhymes in the styles of Mendelssohn and Rossini.
