Hermann Klein - 1889

from Thirty Years of Musical Life in London, 1870-1900, page 283:

Largely through the influence of Joseph Barnby, the quick development of the modern Flemish school found recognition in the production by the Royal Choral Society of Peter Benoit's oratorio “Lucifer." It created the impression, however, of a more or less disconnected series of tone-pictures, original in treatment, but lacking in spontaneous inspiration.
