Bantock was born in London. A close friend of fellow composer Havergal Brian , he was professor of music at the University of Birmingham from 1908 to 1934 (in which post he succeeded Sir Edward Elgar ). In 1934, he was elected Chairman of the Corporation of Trinity College of Music in London. He was knighted in 1930.

The daughter’s remark about “oriental extravagance” points to the impulsive side of his Bantock’s nature, which wasn’t always attractive. She remembers his explosive tempers, when he would bellow for instant attention from his long-suffering wife Helena, and the children would “creep about until the evil mood had passed.” The tendency to self-indulgence could take bizarre forms. On one occasion he became bored with an evening game of cards with an old friend, and left the room, ostensibly in search of a book. In fact he’d simply gone to bed, leaving the bewildered friend to let himself out of the house and make his way home.
