Frederick Delius (1862 – 1934) was an English composer whose musical style is characterized by chromaticism, although it is still largely tonal with luscious harmonies - mainly slow moving, with the frequent use of leitmotifs and constantly evolving melody. Orchestral excerpts from his operas, for example La Calinda from Koanga — which originated in the 1880's Florida Suite — and The Walk to the Paradise Garden from A Village Romeo and Juliet, are also reasonably often played and recorded, as are orchestral works such… read more

    Come to think of it, deleted user, err, whomever you are, he's kind of like a cross between Debussy and Elgar.

But it was orchestrated and harmonized more in the manner of Elgar than Debussy.
