Audience at Shrewsbury School in Shrewsbury School - the 1910's

from Two Men: A Memoir, page 2:

He [Malcolm White] was an excellent violinist, and he must have known it, and the same may be said of his powers as a singer, yet his skill in these directions was never obtruded, nor concealed by any false modesty. If asked to play, he would play, and his 'That's rather jolly, isn't it ?' at the end of the piece suggested that, quite unaffectedly he considered that the gratitude of the listeners was due entirely to the composer; in fact he seemed to join in the gratitude and to regard himself as one of the listeners.
