Program Notes

One of the most popular 20th-century British composers, Gerald Finzi is particularly known for his marvelous works for voice. Influenced by Elgar and Vaughan Williams, his musical style is captivating and distinctive, and adapts beautifully in instrumental settings.

This attractive collection, an important addition to the wind band repertoire to set alongside the suites by Holst and Vaughan Williams, includes When I Set out for Lyonesse, Come Away, Come Away Death and Rollicum Rorum.
