Duet for Two Voices Summary


Duet for Two Voices: An Informal Biography of Edward Dent compiled from his Letters to Clive Carey by Hugh Carey

Edward Dent was a prolific correspondent and hundreds of letters remain, many in the Rowe Library at Kings College, Cambridge, bearing witness that what he wrote was treasured by the recipients. Clive Carey was no exception: during a friendship that began in Cambridge in 1901 when he was an organ scholar at Clare and Dent a newly elected Fellow of King's and lasted till Dent's death in 1957, Carey kept every letter he received, more than four hundred in all. Using some of these letters as a framework, Carey's nephew has compiled an informal biography of Edward Dent. The book is illustrated throughout with pictures taken for the most part from personal sources. Production pictures, costume designs and sets will be of particular interest to the theatre and opera historian, while the period flavour of the book in general will appeal to anyone with interest in or nostalgia for an era that ended with the fifties.
