Behind the backs of the music style police


Yes, the music style police are definitely hibernating. First Edmund Rubbra slipped past them, now it is Gerald Finzi.

"...musical style police"??

Please. Given some of the activities in the news recently of actual police, this comment goes beyond silly.

As I said in a recent comment, I have easy and inexpensive access to a wider variety of recorded, downloadable, streamable, and live classical music than ever before in my 40+ years as a listener.

I understand that you are deeply unhappy about some of the means and mechanisms, but the reality is as I've stated it.

Scott, quite so.

And wouldn't it be wonderful if the music humour police could be persuaded to hibernate as well?
