Daniel Cook (organ)


A trio of English composers perhaps better known for their creative output in other fields, yet who played a crucial role in the development of the Anglican choral tradition in the twentieth century. James O’Donnell and Westminster Abbey Choir present a programme centred on Finzi’s Lo, the full, final sacrifice: the other works may be less familiar but are no less moving.

“The choir’s diffuse tone – breathier in the upper voices than rivals at New College or even King’s Cambridge – is very effective” Gramophone Magazine, February 2017

“Fine performances from all involved in this recording of English church music.” MusicWeb International, 21st February 2017

Finzi: Intimations of Immortality & Dies natalis

Finzi: Intimations of Immortality & Dies natalis


Finzi:

Dies natalis, Op. 8

Intimations of Immortality, Op. 29


John Mark Ainsley (tenor)

Corydon Singers & Corydon Orchestra, Matthew Best

This album brings together two of Finzi’s most characteristic works. Dies natalis, a setting of prose and verse by the seventeenth-century metaphysical poet Thomas Traherne, is a piece of sublime concord and timelessness, music which vividly suggests the vision of a child’s innocence and unsullied perception of the world which lies at the heart of Traherne’s philosophy. Intimations of Immortality is by contrast a lament for the lost joys of Traherne’s idealized childhood. Finzi uses Wordsworth’s famous ode to convey his view that ‘a dead poet lives in many a live stockbroker’ and the result is a work of arresting beauty.

“Rich, glowing performances in a class apart” BBC Music Magazine

“There have been several excellent previous recordings of Dies natalis but John Mark Ainsley’s rendition is as fine as the best of them. This recent release is indispensable to the Finzi aficionado and highly recommended to all who enjoy the early twentieth-century English school of composers” Fanfare
