As I lay in the early sun, Op 13b No 3
As I lay in the early sun, by the Georgian poet Edward Shanks, was composed in 1921 in the wake of an unpublished by Gurney (for whom Finzi remained a lifelong advocate) and a published one by Armstrong Gibbs. Transparently diatonic with understated modal inflections, Finzi’s lush harmony and ecstatic vocal contours underpin Shanks’s pastoral daydream.
