Nevertheless, Warlock has been criticized for writing what Gerald Cockshott called 'all those songs about beer'; in analysing his choice of subject matter and the respect he accorded to the natural stresses of the texts he used, this book offers more penetrating insights into the composer's motivations and achievements. As such it is vital reading for those concerned with the evolution of British music in the early part of this century.
