From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

(Agnes) Elisabeth Lutyens (July 9, 1906–April 14, 1983) was an English composer, one of the five children of architect Sir Edwin Lutyens.

She worked in isolation and neglect, creating a personal style of serialism and eventually gaining some recognition for her ability to set text. Lutyens' work was exposed to the public at large through her scores for horror films including The Skull (1965) and Theatre of Death (1966).

She created a great deal of dramatic as well as abstract works. She married conductor Edward Clark. In 1969 she was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire. Her autobiography, A Goldfish Bowl, was published in 1972.

In 1960 Elisabeth Lutyens revised the use of a Wagner tuba quartet in her Quincunx.
