Issued for the Finzi centenary in summer 2001, Gerald Finzi is a compilation set in Decca's British Music Collection series and designed to give an overview of the composer's choral/vocal music--which it does, with mixed results. The tracks are nearly all reissues, some of them approaching vintage status but including two extremely fine accounts by Richard Hickox of the ceremonial cantata "For St Cecilia" and the orchestral song cycle "Dies Natalis" (with a youthfully impassioned Philip Langridge). Representing Finzi's songs with piano are Bryn Terfel's handsome reading of the cycle "Let Us Garlands Bring" and a classic Benjamin Luxon recording of "Earth, Air and Rain", originally issued on Argo in the mid-1970s and hard to track down in recent years. But the major choral setting "Intimations of Immortality", which you would expect to find here, isn't. And although the lesser-known "In Terra Pax" is magical and in itself a worthy substitute, the performance selected is a thin one (with decidedly weak soloists) by Winchester Cathedral Choir. The Hickox version would have been a better choice but never mind. There's quite enough on these CDS to recommend them at mid-price. --Michael White
