Format: Audio CD
This apparently artless music is extraordinarily beautiful. My introduction to Finzi, many years ago, was through his orchestral song cycle 'Dies Natalis', to words by the 17th. century mystic Thomas Traherne, and that is really worth seeking out - Finzi had a special skill, as Britten did, in setting words naturally and memorably to music. On this CD, the idiom is the same, with a wistful, slightly melancholy manner combined to lovely musical phrases which linger in the memory. As a bonus, you have Boult as conductor for some pieces, and you will not get better. The others are conducted by Vernon Handley, consistently skilled and reliable in English music, and with absolutely excellent 70s sounds splendidly transferred, this is a very worthy and very lovely disc.

This is a brilliant CD for Finzi fans and indeed anyone who loves English music. Finzi is well known for his "tuneful" works, recognised in the playing of one piece at the royal wedding. I recommend this to any music lover as it contains most of Finzi's lyrical works.Finzi - Orchestral Works

These recordings originally appeared on vinyl and have now been re-mastered onto CD. The quality is good and the performances also; the disk contains virtually all of Finzi's shorter orchestral music. Highly recomended for all lovers of this composer, and for all those who don't haven't yet discovered them as well.

This very English music is quietly uplifting. It is beautifully played, relaxing and quite different from more well-known English works.
