One of Bennett’s most immediately attractive works in this vein is Letters to Lindbergh, composed in 1982 as a cantata for high voices and piano duet. The poems by Martin Hall quote whimsically from a selection of the many letters supposed to have been received by the first solo Atlantic aviator, Charles Lindbergh, during his non-stop solo flight from New York to Paris in 1927. His correspondents include Scott of the Antarctic, the rusting hulk of the Titanic and the Walt Disney cartoon dog, Pluto.
