Finzi wrote incidental music for a BBC broadcast of the Shakespeare's

play in 1946, reworked it for a special stage presentation in 1952, and

finally extracted a 10-number suite for small orchestra. The most

important of these, in Finzi's view, are the Three Soliloquies, which

provide soft background music for the three lovers' sonnets in Act 4

Scene 3. The suite includes also a courtly Introduction, "Moth" (a

scherzo with a song inside), a Nocturne, "The Hunt", a Dance, a

Quodlibet for the clowns, and the Finale.
