Michael Vyner (1943 - 20 October 1989) was an English arts administrator.
Vyner's death occasioned a range of musical tributes from some of the major composers of the day, including Hans Werner Henze (Requiem), Luciano Berio (Leaf, for piano), Harrison Birtwistle (Ritual Fragment), Toru Takemitsu (Litany - In Memory of Michael Vyner and My Way of Life - In Memory of Michael Vyner ), Peter Maxwell Davies (Threnody on a Plainsong for Michael Vyner) Henryk Górecki (Good Night, In Memoriam Michael Vyner) and Oliver Knussen (Secret Psalm).
From 1990 to 2004 there was a Michael Vyner Trust, established to assist young composers and commission new works. Michael Vyner's papers are held by the British Library.
