    While visiting Germany for the Bayreuth music festival in 1914, Edgar Bainton was caught by the outbreak of war and interned in Ruhleben civilian detention camp near Berlin with other musicians (including Ernest MacMillan, Edward Clark, Percy Hull and Arthur Benjamin). He organized a madrigal society known as 'Bainton's Magpies', conducted an orchestra, played piano concertos, lectured on musical and literary subjects, and composed vigorously. In 1918 he was invalided to The Hague before resuming his position at Newcastle in England.
