Settled in 1889 in France, dying at his home at Grez-sur-Loing near Fontainbleau. Became blind and largely paralysed: Fenby, his amanuensis from 1928, took down some late compositions from dictation. Evolving a somewhat impressionist idiom related both to Edvard Hagerup Grieg and Claude-Achille Debussy. Delius wrote operas, choral/orchestra works 3 violin sonatas, violin concerto, piano concerto; many songs (English, German, Danish, Norwegian texts), etc.
