Notes & Reviews:

"Here is a generous offering, surrounding a lesser-known instrumental masterpiece, of some of Finzi's finest vocal music, all in meticulously tasteful and sympathetic performances. Gerald Finzi (1901-56) was an Englishman of independent means and broad cultivation...His musical language was a direct outgrowth of the poignant yet noble lyricism of Elgar..." -Simmons, Fanfare
