Bliss, Arthur (Edward Drummond) at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:
British composer. He studied with R. Vaughan Williams and G. Holst. Though compositionally adventurous at first, his music turned conservatively Romantic, and he has been seen as the principal successor to E. Elgar. His works include A Colour Symphony (1922), Pastoral (1928), the choral symphony Morning Heroes (1930), Music for Strings (1936), and the ballets Checkmate (1937) and Miracle in the Gorbals (1944).
