Born in 1922, Swedish composer Lars Edlund passed away on 21 December. Edlund began his career at the end of the 1940s and later worked as a teacher at the Royal College of Music. From 1971 he devoted himself exclusively to composition.

Edlund worked as a church musician in rural Sweden for a number of years, but being afflicted by misgivings about the aesthetics and aims of Lutheran church music he converted to Catholicism. His output was spiritually marked, a lot of it being sacred music.
