Notes & Reviews:

"A splendid companion to the same team's 2005 recording of Gerald Finzi's Intimations of Immortality, tenor James Gilchrist and conductor David Hill with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra once again turn in superlative performances in this 2008 disc... While Finzi fans may already have favorite recordings of many of these works, these superb performances will nevertheless be mandatory listening for them. And those who don't already know any of the English modernist's works could do worse than to start with this disc." -All Music Guide
