Composed in June 1940 and intended to be the central section of a violin sonata, this serene movement acknowledges Finzi’s indebtedness to Bach. The sonority and length of line are beguiling as the music builds to a climax of arresting intensity, from which it recedes to the final repose, evident too in the simplicity of its opening.
