Working on a page which includes some of Ernest's ugly loser friends such as
Percy Grainger, pianist and composer:
F.S. Kelly, musician, composer, Olympic rowing champion:
drawings by John Singer Sargent, portraitist of ugly losers.
Ernest was collecting composers there for awhile...
Oh, and I should mention he did some composing of his own; for his role in "The Little Damozel" he had to play the piano and sing, so he composed a little tune in his limited range (he'd had a good singing voice as a child, but his voice kind of flattened out instead of breaking when he reached puberty). People liked the song enough they often asked him who had composed it and where to get the music!
