Muriel Herbert (1897-1984) was a British composer, pianist and singer. She studied at the Royal College of Music, where she met Charles Stanford and Roger Quilter. She wrote many songs for Voice and Piano in her early life, as well as some instrumental and orchestral works, but stopped composing after her husband left her in 1939. Her works were largely unappreciated until twenty years after her death, but they have now, quite rightly, become the subject of a keen and enthusiastic revival with a growing fan base.
The Lake Of Innisfree was one of her most popular works. It is a setting of a poem by the Irish poet W. B. Yates (1865-1939).
