Summary

In 1904 Bantock was appointed conductor of the Liverpool Orchestral Society, and his third son Hamilton was born. His ‘Rhapsody for Chorus and Orchestra’, The Time-Spirit, was premiered at the Gloucester Festival; it was published in the same year, along with his English Scenes for orchestra and Joseph Holbrooke's piano arrangement of The Witch of Atlas. Newman's book Wagner was published by John Lane, and his article on Hugo Wolf appeared in the Contemporary Review. Wallace was also active, publishing his translation of Berlioz's La damnation de Faust (Breitkopf und Härtel), his songs ‘My Dear and Only Love’ (a setting of James Graham), ‘For the Crown’ and ‘I Seek Thee in My Dreams’ (settings of his own texts) and the unison song ‘The Spacious Firmament’ (Joseph Addison), all with Schott & Co.; another song setting of his own words, ‘My Liege Lady’, was published by Boosey.

My dear Will

I should reply to the enclosed letter saying your terms for private lessons are halfa- guinea for a half-hour's lesson. This is what Breeden charges. You can arrange for a room at Stockley & Sabin's in Colmore Row, at I believe 1/- an hour. Whatever you do, don't go to Priestley's.

You might also say if you think proper that a 20 minutes’ lesson in Class at the Institute School of Music would be £6 the Session.

I am going to Worcester & Wolverhampton tomorrow (Wednesday) & shall sleep at “the Jungle” on Wednesday night, leaving early Thursday morning to spend the remaining four days with Helen & the boys.

The Nurse is here, but the young man delays his arrival into this miserable world. How I expect to catch the 10.15 or 10.53 – on Wednesday night from New Street for Northfield. Shall I see you there, or can you come round for early breakfast at the Jungle. 7 AM.

Love to you both

Always

Gran

My dear Will.

Forgive me. I have been reluctant to recall the details of my “mis-spent” life, but I have at last made an heroic effort, and will try to present the bald facts without even a blush.
