Frederick Theodore Albert Delius (1862–1934), was an English composer. The lyricism in Delius's early compositions reflected both the music he had heard in America and the influences of European composers such as Edvard Grieg and Richard Wagner.

Delius's music has been only intermittently popular, and often subject to critical attacks.
