“Here it is unfolded with great artistry. Beautifully told—a real page-turner of what so easily might have been a dull, historical account. Here the social scene of city and county is presented, a gallery of amazing, idiosyncratic people, all of them committed to the cause of music. This is highly entertaining reading with a serious purpose. The words of the final pages emphasize pleasure, happiness, the concentration, the commitment, ‘the oneness of us all’. This book speaks beyond itself and deserves the widest possible readership.” Esther de Waal
“What pleasure this book gave me. It is so funny as well as hugely informative. How lucky the Society is to have Timothy Day as its historian.” Sir Roy Strong
