Chatting with Benjamin Britten

One day Ben and I were chatting and I asked him what had been his most embarrassing moment.

It was this:  H.M. Queen Mary had gone backstage after a performance of “Lucretia” and asked him why he had chosen such a subject.  He told me he didn’t know how to reply so he just said “Well, Ma’am, I rather like that sort of thing.”   The Dowager Queen wasn’t amused!
