His earliest works, especially Edith Sitwell's Façade, brought him notoriety as a modernist, but it was with orchestral symphonic works and the oratorio Belshazzar's Feast that he gained international recognition. He was knighted in 1951 and admitted to the Order of Merit in 1967. He died in Ischia, Italy, where he had settled in 1949.
