... ‘a sort of sugared complacency and flattering make-believe … as if it were written for the birthday fête of a German Grand Duke’. The Vincys' musical evening in Middlemarch ( 1871–2 ) contains more sophisticated music than the inane country dances which make up Lady Catherine de Burgh's after-dinner recitals in Pride and Prejudice ( 1813 ): Rosamund Vincy has been taught by ‘one of those excellent musicians here and there to be found in our provinces, worthy to compare with many a noted Kapellmeister ’, and Lydgate senses ‘a hidden soul …...
