We're very excited to share with you music by Benjamin Britten, Lili Boulanger, and Gerald Finzi on this online groupmuse. The pieces presented in this program represent the beginnings and endings of these composers' song output, including Britten's first cycle for Peter Pears, Finzi's last song (written a month before his death), and Lili's first and only song cycle. Thanks for joining us!
