John Ireland is, amongst other of his many activities, an organist. For many years he was the organist of St. Luke's Church, Chelsea. Listeners to recent organ recital broadcasts have heard the very beautiful new Compton organ recently built in the church. This, unfortunately for Ireland, was not his instrument. He played on a two manual instrument which, pending the removal of an old and dilapidated instrument and the building of the new one, was installed temporarily.

The Carnival of Animals is a piece of fun, a parody, a genial satire, and has, or had, implications hidden in the music. For a long time Saint-Saens would not allow it all to be published, though he released from the Suite for general use that graceful, charming little piece, The Swan. Many of the numbers are supposed to reflect the idiosyncrasies of some of his friends and associates, others to burlesque musical conventions. The whole suite is the jolly kind of music that one would expect from little sound 'pictures of birds, animals, domestic fowl, and 'pianists'.
