Marie Dare was a Scottish composer and cellist. Some of her songs demonstrate a great depth of emotion. She is widely remembered as a reserved, "private" person but of great warmth and charm. Her music is idiomatic and somewhat conservative, including chamber, choral, and some orchestral works.
She studied at the Guildhall School of Music and became famous as a cello soloist when she played at the Victory Concert at the Royal Albert Hall at the end of World War 1. She went to Paris to learn more about cello and composition. In the second half of World War 2, she served in the Royal Naval Service of Women and became the Edinburgh Reid Orchestra's lead cellist.
