This belief in preserving an intimate scale for music leads him to some conclusions that are in a sense prophetic, looking beyond the gargantuan excesses of 1900 to the early music movement of the late 20th century. 2 He even predicts that one day Handel’s operas will be revived on stage. Ernest Walker in 1907 was still talking of ‘the virtual impossibility of staging nowadays an entire Handelian opera in its original shape’;3 yet by the end of the 20th century every one of them had been successfully staged.

Though in Switzerland, it well illustrates Bennett’s description of serious Germanic music-making as part of family life, where those who are not taking part continue their work (or play) as they listen. Germans greatly the gainers, and as I speak from experience I can speak upon the matter with confidence. The first point is, that German homes are musical – good music and good performance is the rule in Germany, in England it is the exception.
A possible reason for this startling omission is one that may also explain Bennett’s general ambivalence toward opera. He was a ‘Victorian’ in the stereotypical sense: a prude. He could not wholeheartedly admire a drama that openly presented adultery and promiscuous sex and treated them as a subject for entertainment, as da Ponte and Mozart did. ’1 The same feeling may well have been a strong though unspoken factor in his disapproval of Verdi and Wagner. ’2 Evidently Bennett was conflicted on the matter.
