John Foulds (1880–1939) was a largely self-taught composer of light music and theatre scores. He was an adventurous composer with a passion for India and Indian music. But his light music was more highly acclaimed - which irritated him. In the 1920s, his beautiful Keltic Lament was played daily on the radio, leading Foulds to complain to Adrian Boult that his serious music was not being performed.
