"It seems to me that to organize on the basis of feeding people or righting social injustice and all that is very valuable. But to rally people around the idea of modernism, modernity, or something is simply silly. I mean, I don't know what kind of a cause that is, to be up to date. I think it ultimately leads to fashion and snobbery and I'm against it."
Jack Levine: January 3, 1915 – November 8, 2010
Here is a movie from the BBC that talks about the surprising career of a Catholic composer working for the Protestant Queen. I've not now seen the whole thing but the performances of his music in it are quite fine. It's unusually well done for a BBC history, if a bit indulgent for one of the more brutal monarchs in English history (though no where near as brutal as her psychopathic father).
