This investigation of the consumption of high musical culture among leisured society in Victorian London focuses on the activities of the concert manager John Ella and his Musical Union (1845-81) , an eminent, long-lived institution for chamber music, much feted across Europe in its day. A biography of Ella is combined with a social- economic history of the Musical Union, its players, repertoire and audiences, set against the gradually shifting contexts for London concerts, chamber music and cultural life.
