Alphabetical listing of all musical works

A baby watched a ford, whereto  
A spirit passed before my face  
A star looks down at me  
A time there was — as one may guess  
A Young Man's Exhortation, Op 14 (Finzi)
At a lunar eclipse  
At day-close in November  
At last I put off love, for twice ten years  
At Middle-Field Gate in February  
At nine in the morning there passed a church  
At the railway station, Upway 'The convict and the boy with the violin'  
Beckon to me to come  
Before and After Summer, Op 16 (Finzi)
Before life and after  
Beneath a knap where flown  
Budmouth Dears  
Call off your eyes from care  
Channel Firing  
Childhood among the Ferns  
Creak, little wood thing, creak  
Dear Lizbie Browne  
Dear, think not that they will forget you  
Dear, think not that they will forget you 'Her temple'  
Earth and Air and Rain, Op 15 (Finzi)
Faint heart in a railway train (Herbert)
Five Songs to poems by Thomas Hardy (Ireland)
For Life I had never cared greatly  
Former Beauties  
Great things (Ireland)
He Abjures Love  
He often would ask us  
Her song  
Her Temple  
Here is the ancient floor, footworn and hollowed and thin  
I kissed them in fancy as I came away in the morning glow  
I look into my glass  
I marked her ruined hues  
I need not go  
I said to Love, Op 19b (Finzi)
I sat one sprinkling day upon the lea  
I say 'I'll seek her side', Op 13b No 1 (Finzi)
If it's ever spring again (Milford)
In a Churchyard  
In five-score summers  
In my sage moments  
In the Mind's Eye  
In the third-class seat sat the journeying boy  
In the wild October night-time  
In years defaced  
It bends far over Yell'ham Plain  
It is sad that so many of worth  
It never looks like summer here  
It was what you bore with you, woman  
Its former green is blue and thin  
Let me enjoy the earth  
Life Laughs Onward  
Little head against my shoulder  
Looking forward to the spring  
Midnight on the Great Western 'The journeying boy'  
More Songs of the Countryside (Head)
Nine leaves a minute swim down shakily  
Nobody took any notice of her as she stood on the causey kerb  
One without looks to-night  
Only a man harrowing clods  
Overlooking the River  
Past the hills that peep  
Portion of this yew is a man my grandshire new  
Proud Songsters  
Proud songsters 'Thrushes, finches and nightingales'  
Queer are the ways of a man I know  
Rambling I looked for an old abode  
Regret not me; beneath the sunny tree  
Requiem da camera (Finzi)
Shortening Days  
Simple was I and was young  
So I have fared  
Summer schemes  
Summer Schemes  
That night your great guns, unawares  
That was once her casement, and the taper nigh  
The bars are thick with drops that show  
The choirmaster's burial 'The tenor man's story'  
The Clock of the Years  
The Colour (Milford)
The Comet at Yell'ham  
The Dance Continued  
The darkling thrush (Hawes)
The fallow deer at the lonely house (Bliss)
The first fire since summer is lit, and it smoking into the room  
The Garden Seat  
The little old table  
The Market-Girl  
The night of Trafalgar (Gurney)
The oxen (Gibbs)
The Oxen (Radcliffe)
The Phantom  
The Self-Unseeing  
The Sigh  
The swallows flew in the curves of an eight  
The ten hours’ light is abating  
The thrushes sing as the sun is going  
The thrushes sing as the sun is going  
The Too Short Time  
The tragedy of that moment  
There is not much that I can do  
These market-dames, mid-aged, with lips thin-drawn  
Three Songs to poems by Thomas Hardy (Ireland)
Thy shadow, earth, from pole to central sea  
Till Earth outwears, Op 19a (Finzi)
To Lizbie Browne  
Two Lips  
Wagtail and baby 'A satire'  
Waiting Both  
What shall I bring you?  
When friendly summer calls again  
When I set out for Lyonnesse  
When lawyers strive to heal a breach  
When we lay where Budmouth Beach is, o the girls were fresh as peaches  
Winter Words, Op 52 (Britten)
