My lovely one, Op 27 No 1

1946; SATB divisi + organ; Marriage anthem composed for the marriage of Finzi's sister-in-law on 2 September 1946
author of text
from Sacramental Meditations

My lovely one was composed for the marriage of Finzi’s sister-in-law and took its text from the same source as God is gone up. Again, the especially rapt moments are the unaccompanied ones. Within a very brief span Finzi moves from a subdued minor-key invocation to an affecting major-key candour and tenderness, then back again.
