An in-depth look at Sam Bennett, the man and his music. Questions are raised about the reliability of the recordings as to pitch and tempo, and their usefulness as sources for stylistic information. Does the collection reflect what is known of Bennett’s extensive repertoire, and that of his contemporaries? Was Sam Bennett an paragon or an anomaly? Exploring Carpenter’s material from Bennett allows us to better understand the performer and contextualise the performance.
