I Love All Beauteous Things —
The Music of Herbert Howells

The music of the English composer Herbert Howells (1892-1983) was steeped in the landscape of his native Gloucestershire, his love of cathedral architecture, the language of the Book of Common Prayer and King James Bible, and what he described as the “immemorial sound of English voices”. Howells's contribution to English church music stands at the pinnacle of the tradition, yet this agnostic musician's life and work was shaped by personal tragedy and grief, as well as ‘all beauteous things’. In this talk, the Reverend Dr Paul Andrews, an honorary Vice-President of the Herbert Howells Society, introduces the composer's life and music.

Part of the Palmers' Talk and Tea series.

Tickets: (limited seating) £5 on door (tea and cake included).
