 Abstract: 

With a career spanning almost the entire 20th century and an output exceeding 200 works, Elizabeth Maconchy was a composer of extraordinary passion, intellect, and ability. Winner of numerous substantial prizes and champion of new music and young composers, she was a figure of true tenacity in the face of serious illness and difficult circumstances. This study serves as an introduction to the composer's life and music bringing together significant unpublished and previously unavailable material for the first time.
