May I express my wholehearted admiration for your Delius Book...It is an amazing story and an amazing human and musical feat that you accomplished in taking down his last musical thoughts - an enviable feat! Percy Grainger, 6th Dec 1936; A courageous book and worthy of a Yorkshireman. Sir Matthew Smith, Nov 1936; I have read this book many times and never without being deeply moved by its unusual and perhaps unique emotional impact. Sir Malcolm Sergeant, Icon Edition 1966.


Author Information

Eric Fenby died in 1997 at the age of 91 and is buried in his native Yorkshire with Rowena, his wife for over 50 years. His time as Delius's Amanuensis was the formative experience that was to govern his entire life. During the war he was in the Royal Army Education Corp and afterwards he founded the Music Department at the North Riding Training College. In 1962 he was the Artistic Director of the Delius Centenary Festival and later that year he received the OBE for services to music. He went on to become Professor of Harmony at the Royal Academy of Music and was awarded several Honorary Doctorates. As a composer, his own best known work is the parody overture Rossini on Ilkla Moor played at the proms in 1941. In later life he made various outstanding recordings, accompanying the Delius Violin Sonatas and then conducting the dictated orchestral works, fittingly entitled The Fenby Legacy.
