[+] Stevenson, Ronald. "Delius's Sources." Tempo, no. 151 (December 1984): 24-27.

The influence of Chopin on Delius is illustrated by the appearance of a particular dominant 13th chord from Chopin's Waltz in E minor in Delius's Sea Drift. Delius's affinity for added-note harmonies may stem from the richly-spaced dominant 9th and added 6th chords of the E major trio of the same waltz. Wagner's leaping, flexible bass line from the Ride of the Valkyries nfluenced Delius's Messe des Lebens.
