When I set out for Lyonnesse (from Earth and Air and Rain)(1932-49)
arr.for tenor and small orchestra
Thomas Hardy (E)
Boosey & Hawkes
This work is available from Boosey & Hawkes for the world.
The appeal of this popular song from the cycle Earth and Air and Rain is heightened in an orchestral arrangement which adds colour and drama to the steady tread of the poet’s journey. Here is an excellent opportunity for fresh discovery in one of the most virile of Finzi’s songs. It can also be performed as part of the sequence of songs for tenor and chamber orchestra In Years Defaced.
