    The Lyric Feature

    In the second of a new three part series, Ian Fox tells the stories of the remarkable women who inspired, influenced and collaborated with some of the great composers.

    The Lyric Feature is RTÉ lyric fm's weekly documentary and music feature programme. Programmes are produced in house by RTÉ lyric fm staff or in collaboration with independent production companies. Subject matter varies from week to week but most of the programmes aim to provide insight into music and music making.

    The Lyric Feature is currently accepting proposals from independent producers and production companies for the BAI's Sound and Vision III Round 24. See here for details
