George Bernard Shaw was a keen observer of all kinds of music and had a particular fondness for choral music, of which he was frequently a scathing critic. The Philharmonic Choir was part of the Philharmonic Society which, in its heyday was a pillar of the musical productions given at St James's Hall, London to which George Bernard Shaw was a frequent visitor.
