  • In qualità di critico musicale molto apprezzato, pubblicò molti articoli sui quotidiani The Morning Post (dal 1925 al 1937) e Daily Express.La sua fama si accrebbe nell'ambito della cultura musicale attraverso la pubblicazione delle due monografie dedicate a Giuseppe Verdi e a Gioacchino Rossini nelle quali, attraverso puntigliose e cospicue indagini, traspare la sua profonda professionalità, anche se non mancarono garbati accenni umoristici. Dal 1939 è stato direttore del British Institute di Firenze, sostituito nel 1958 da Ian Gordon Greenlees.A parte la parentesi degli anni della Seconda guerra mondiale, dal 1939 al 1946 circa, che trascorse a Rio de Janeiro quale rappresentante del British Council, ritornò a Firenze e vi rimase fino alla morte.

In 1939 Toye was appointed director of the British Institute of Florence, but the outbreak of World War II forced him to leave Italy in 1940. During the war, he served as director of the Sociedade Brasileira de Cultura Inglesa, Rio de Janeiro. Toye returned to the institute in Florence in 1946. He retired in 1958 but continued to live in Florence for the rest of his life. Toye published novels, a play, autobiographies, essays and some works of music, but the book generally regarded as his most important was Giuseppe Verdi: His Life and Music, published in 1931, which remained the standard English work on its subject for many years.
