Arthur James Lewis would welcome male friends to Moray Lodge, his bachelor establishment on Campden Hill, overlooking London's Holland Park, for a music party over the winter months. Once a month between January and March, singers would gather on a Saturday evening at 8:30 pm to perform modern and ancient works; and an oyster supper was served at eleven.
