Finzi's In Terra Pax

'In Terra Pax' was one of Finzi's very last compositions before leukaemia claimed him at the age of 55. Stephen Johnson unpacks the origins of this Christmas favourite and explores how, despite the many tragic events that shaped Finzi's world, he left behind a work filled with hope and beauty.
