Gerald Finzi

Gerald Finzi (1901-56)

Composer

Gerald Finzi is an enigmatic figure; born to European Jewish parents and an agnostic for his entire life, he nevertheless became a key English church composer, producing numerous sacred works from the uplifting Ascensiontide motet God is gone up to the large-scale, and more meditative, cantata Dies Natalis and the beautiful Christmas scene In terra pax. He was an accomplished writer for the solo voice, too, with perhaps his finest achievement in this area being the wistfully elegiac Let us Gardlands Bring.
