John Ritchie's String Quartet (1962) is another fine example of his writing style that is imbued with lyricism and traditional forms. Ritchie considers the work to be autobiographical with each movement reflecting a period of his life. This makes it an important work to study within the context of Ritchie's overall musical output.
