Catalogue Number: 09M065
Description: The radiant acoustic of one of the cathedrals of the Three Choirs Festival is the setting for this lovely recording of the complete canticles for King's College, Cambridge and the evening canticles for those Three Choirs cathedrals. Tudor church music, Vaughan Williams and French Impressionism fused in Howell's compositions in this genre to create a wholly new English sacred music voice, one which can appeal even to collectors who love English music but don't listen to its sacred side. Peter Dyke (organ), Choir of Hereford Cathedral; Geraint Bowen.
