Summary

1910 saw the publication of a second shorter episode from Bantock's Christus in vocal score, ‘Gethsemane’, and the first complete performance of Omar Khayyám (15 February). An extract from Wallace's symphonic poem Villon, entitled ‘Françoys Villon's Prayer to Nostre-Dame (Song to the Virgin)’, was published for voice and piano by Schott and Co, and his song setting of his own text, ‘Great Britain over-seas’, was published by Boosey & Co. Wallace also published his English translations of operas by Richard Strauss (Feuersnot) and Edmond de Missa (Muguette) and the lyric drama Le Chemineau by Jean Richepin.

Dear Will

What do you think of this in tonight's Mail? They are losing no time in pushing our friend, & we shall have to be on the ‘qui vive’.

My dear Newman

You will be doing Mr. Feeney [sic] a service, if you will see him personally, & look at some of his work. He is self taught in his music, & his ideas show considerable originality & promise. The question, however, is concerning his future. He will explain his position.

Yours

Granville Bantock

I have got the full score of ‘Salome’ for a few days. Come over to Broad Meadow on Sunday for a ‘peep’ at it. Got a Bas-relief for you, if you will come over.

Allah.

Dear Will

If you have any time to spare on Sunday, you might run over to Broad Meadow, to chat over the Opera scheme & procedure. Of course if you cannot manage it, never mind; but I hope you will attend the meeting here at the Institute on Monday next at 7. PM, as you are the only one, who has seen the actual performances. Your leading article has aroused a considerable amount of interest, & while the iron is hot, it is worth striking.
