The sixth setting of the Seven Poems by Robert Bridges by Gerald Finzi (written between 1934–37), this work was written shortly after Finzi’s period as a teacher of harmony at the Royal Academy of Music in London, and is scored for unaccompanied SSATB. The joyful exuberance of the first lines of the poem is reflected to great effect by Finzi’s energised part writing and the rhythmic vitality at the beginning of the piece.
