"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Gerald Finzi: My Spirit Sang All Day

  1. And a very nice choice, too! I have to admit I hadn't come across Finzi's work until I discovered your blog -- now one the high-spots of my week-end! -- but I am rapidly becoming very taken with it.

    Thank you for introducing me to this wonderful music.

    As always, my very best wishes.

  2. Thank you, Opsimath - and mine to you. This piece may be short but it's very, very sweet and uplifting.
