dc.description.abstract Since the death of Gerald Finzi his songs have continued to grow in popularity. Evidence of this popularity can be found in the number of recordings available as well as the research performed on his compositions. Another more recent stimulus to his popularity has come from the publisher Boosey & Hawkes with the release of several of Finzi’s song sets now available in two collections, one for high voice and the other in a medium/low range. As the interest in Finzi’s songs continues to grow it seemed prudent to create a guide to make information about his songs more easily accessible via the internet, this guide/web site was created for that purpose. Within the web site one will find detailed information about the texts, music, and recordings for Finzi’s songs found in A Young Man’s Exhortation, Till Earth Outwears, and Oh Fair to See. Additionally, one will find biographies for Gerald Finzi, and the poets Edmund Blunden, Robert Bridges, Ivor Gurney, Thomas Hardy, Christina Rossetti, and Edward Shanks. There are also excerpts from dissertations and theses that contain the full comments, tables, and musical examples. Many of these dissertations and theses are only available to those who have access to major lending libraries and their databases. Within this site one will also find links to external sites, enabling greater access to the storehouse of information available via the internet. The discography page, for example, provides numerous links to such information as purchasing recordings, reviews, sound samples, and biographies of performers. The objective of this site is to compile and disseminate information about Finzi’s songs as well as offer greater accessibility to research and products. en
