Born in London, England in 1858 to Edward Gordon Douglas-Pennant Baron Penrhyn and Maria Louisa FitzRoy.

Adela Douglas-Pennant (1858-1955) was born into a titled English family in the mid-19th century. Her father, the first Baron Penrhyn Edward Gordon Douglas-Pennant, was a Scottish landowner in Wales; he was also a politician and played a major role in the development of the Welsh slate industry. After the death of his first wife, Douglas-Pennant married Marie FitzRoy, with whom he had eight daughters, including Adela. Little, however, is known of her life.

"Introduction and Fugue" was written for the Organist’s Quarterly Journal, a publication based in London during the 19th century. Only the composer's initials - “Pennant, The Hon. A. D.” - were listed in the table of contents for that issue (as was the custom of the day when it came to the inclusion of music by female composers). The work consists of two parts - a short, yet stately introduction followed immediately by a sturdy fugue in four voices, cast fully in the conservative Romantic harmonic idiom.
