    Default The Works of Herbert Howells (Selection Thread)

    Born in 1892, Herbert Howells was diagnosed with Graves" disease in 1915 and told he had only 6 months to live. The projection was a little off as Howells died at the ripe age of 90 in 1983.

    Howells didn't seem to pay much attention to the 20th Century modernist trend; his music is best thought off as late romantic in style.

    I did have initial reservations about devoting a game to Howell's music. I was familiar with some of his chamber music and two piano concertos, so I spent a few lockdown hours listening to his orchestral works, choral pieces, songs, and organ works. I came away very impressed and convinced that Howells deserved a Bulldog game.

    Selection Thread Rules:

    1. You may select up to 2 Howells works on a daily basis. In addition, your daily selections must be at least 6 hours apart.

    2. Selections will end when we reach 20 works.

    3. Please use the format below when you make your selections.

    My 2 picks for today:

    Pieces (6) for Organ: no. 3, "Master Tallis's Testament"
    String Quartet ""In Gloucestershire"
