Lawrence and Music
Music played a very important part in the life of author D.H.Lawrence. He loved to get a group of family and friends together and lead them in singing folk songs, ballads, hymns, choruses and operatic excerpts.
An enthusiastic concert-goer, he had a natural ear for music together with a “photographic memory” for it - often demonstrated when he taught “parts” from memory to his singing friends.
There are many musical references in his writings.
