Full text not available from this repository.


(b Salford, Greater Manchester, 8 Sept 1934). English composer. His finest achievements have a depth of symbolism and historical reference rarely encountered elsewhere in contemporary music. He has cultivated various styles, from the unbridled Expressionism of his music-theatre pieces of the late 1960s to the majestically unfolding landscapes of his later orchestral works. He has gained considerable popularity with his lighter pieces, many of them inspired by the folk traditions of Orkney, where he settled in 1971. He has also made a significant contribution to music education in Britain.
