The Committee of The Delius Society regrets to report the death of Robert Threlfall on Thursday 6th November, at the age of 96. He was the doyen of the Delian scholars, producing the definitive Catalogue of the Works of Frederick Delius in 1977, and a Supplement to it in 1986. He had been one of the Music Advisers to The Delius Trust since 1975, and lectured and wrote widely on various facets of Delius’s works. He was also a major authority on the music of Rachmaninoff. A printer by trade, he was a Freeman of the City of London and a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Stationers and Newspaper Makers. He will be sorely missed by all Delians who knew him.
