Gerald Finzi had written his Romance in E-Flat Major, also for string orchestra. He revised it much later in his career, and it only received its first performance in 1951, long after he had moved from London to Wiltshire to devote himself to his twin passions: composing, and the preservation of rare varieties of English apple. Fittingly the Romance has an air of elegiac nostalgia, warmer and more optimistic than the Prelude, growing from a pensive introduction into a lilting and unwaveringly lyrical movement.
