Since we loved, Op 13b No 7

1956; part of the posthumously assembled Op 13b entitled Oh fair to see
author of text

Gerald Finzi’s collection of seven songs Oh fair to see Op 13b was published posthumously in 1965. Since we loved, a setting of a short lyric from Robert Bridges’ New Poems (1899), was completed on 28 August 1956; it was his last composition. No longer than sixteen bars, the song is nevertheless one of Finzi’s most poignant declarations of love, and, in its concentrated through-composed design, one of his most concise musical miniatures.
