"Holding the belief that the more subjects one can, within limits, become interested in, the less time and inclination one has to be unhappy, I will make no excuses for what the friends of my music call my versatility and its detractors the dissipation of my energies, for" in a sad plight is the composer who has no side line or pastime to turn to during those desolate periods when musical ideation gives out, leaving but that painful sense of emptiness and frustration so familiar to all creative artists."

A Twentieth-century renaissance man, Cyril Scott is best known as a composer, where his work is surprisingly accessible and varied. He also wrote poetry, philosophy, and fiction. He painted and sought (before its time) to reform medical practice back toward a naturopathic basis. He wrote 41 books, many more articles, and 400 musical works, from operas to symphonies, chamber music and melodic settings of poetry with piano accompaniment. His musical styles were late romantic or jazzy-bluesy, or impressionistic, or combinations.
