Rush on the Web: “Rush is a Band” and “Power Windows”

“Irish” Symphony — The Imaginative Conservative

Editor’s Note: Arthur Sullivan began writing what would be his only symphony when he was twenty-one years old, on a trip to Ireland, the native land of his father. “The other night as I was jolting home,” he wrote to his mother from Belfast, “through the wind and rain on an open jaunting car, the…
