"I can teach you with a quip, if I've a mind"

Lecture/recital by Martin Lamb (bass-baritone).


Professional engagements permitting.
Admission: members and visitors £2.
The Norman Beckett meeting.



Martin Lamb instructed and entertained us with his lecture/recital on Eminent Victorians Gilbert refers to or satirises.

This contained a mine of information.

The illustrative songs, rendered in his fine voice, of course included the Colonel’s song from Patience,
“If you want a receipt for that popular mystery” which mentions 39 historical figures in rapid succession, and the not so well-known King’s song from Utopia “Society has quite forsaken all her wicked” courses, which refers to a few more.
