To commemorate the 60th Anniversary of British composer Gerald Finzi’s passing, Decca Classics and the Finzi Trust collaborate on a special album to bring some of Finzi's finest works to a whole new audience.

These pieces are some of the best kept secrets of pastoral England – it’s time Finzi's lush, lyrical music found a wider audience. Re-imagined popular vocal works are performed by Classic Brit winner and Grammy nominee Amy Dickson (saxophones). Other soloists include Thomas Gould (violin), Tom Poster (piano) and Nicolas Fleury (French horn).

This release invigorates Finzi’s music with the dynamic Aurora Orchestra and Nicholas Collon, playing arrangements specially commissioned from some of the country’s best arrangers by the Finzi Trust – the ‘guardians’ of this wonderful repertoire.
