Whether artists valued for one work, several or many; whether dealing in "sweet, little, low" things or the guts and deeds of derringdo , all are "bread-and-butter" composers in the standard repertoire. Precious Bane "was voted (by Sunday Times readers in I96I) among the hundred most memorable works of the half-century."
