Let us now praise famous men, Op 35

December 1951; TB + organ
author of text
Ecclesiasticus 44: 1, 3, 4a, 5, 7, 9a, 14

The use of baroque techniques was a common feature in Finzi’s music, and the two-part setting of Let us now praise famous men from Ecclesiasticus XLIV, completed in December 1951, was no exception in its use of a walking bass line to portray the sense of a processional march.
