Birthday Notes for Herbert Howells
Sat October 21, 2017 at 8:00 pm
Choral ensembles throughout the world are celebrating the 125th anniversary of Herbert Howells birth this year. The music of Howells is perhaps the most unique and exquisitely beautiful music written in the 20th century for choral ensembles. Our program features an early work, his Requiem, a work filled with hope and extravagant luminosity. In addition to the Requiem, the de Angelis Vocal Ensemble will explore some of Howells’ rarely performed secular masterpieces. Also on the program are works of Howells’ contemporaries, each selected as a “birthday note” to the beloved Howells.
