2 Sterne, Picker, and Steege are among those who have traced the emergence of auditory science in the otherwise ocularcentric nineteenth century. In addition, for the past four decades, musicologists such as Nicholas Temperley, Christina Bashford, Ruth Solie, Leanne Langley and Phyllis Weliver have been resisting the notion that Victorian England was Das Land ohne Musik and insisting on the vibrant musical life that existed in nineteenth-century Britain.
