English composer whose works reflect the influence and color of the places in which he lived, England, the American mountains and forests, the Atlantic ocean. He subtitled an orchestral nocturne "Paris, The Song of a Great City," 1899. Traveling extensively while young, he studied music at Leipzig Conservatory and finally settled in France. After working eight years in Paris and a marriage, he moved with his wife to Grezsur-Loin.
An onset of illness in 1922 led to paralysis and blindness; Delius continued to compose with help from Eric Fenby. In England for a music festival, he was made Companion of Honor by King George V in 1929.
Died 6/10/1934, Fontainebleau, France.
