A cycle of six of Finzi’s songs arranged for voice and chamber orchestra to mark the composer's centenary in 2001. One of them, When I set out for Lyonnesse, was a hitherto unpublished orchestration of Finzi's own; the others, selected from various cycles for voice & piano, were orchestrated for the occasion by Colin Matthews, Jeremy Dale Roberts, Christian Alexander, Judith Weir and Anthony Payne.

Vocal score on sale; performance materials available on hire from Boosey & Hawkes.
