Repertoire Note

This cycle of six songs represents the first of Finzi’s over fifty settings of Hardy. The music reflects a youthful composer’s intuitive response to poems which were themselves newly published but Finzi’s musical hallmarks are already evident, even if they are not as sophisticated in their presentation as in the songs which were to follow. The collection forms an important first milestone.
