Isabel Rawsthorne was inextricably linked to classical music and to composers and musicians in particular. She married Constant Lambert, composer, conductor and first music director of the Royal Ballet, in 1947. Following his death in 1951, she married the composer Alan Rawsthorne. He died in 1971 and was buried at Thaxted, to be joined by Isabel in 1992
