    Howells: Stabat Mater[David Hill]

    Howells: Stabat Mater[David Hill]

    £6.99
    David Hill | Benjamin Hulett, Tenor | Alison Hill, Soprano | The Bach Choir | Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra

    The three works on this recording mark staging posts in Herbert Howells’s compositional life. Sine nomine was commissioned at Elgar’s instigation when Howells was 30 and is predominantly orchestral, with wordless parts for the two vocal soloists. This arch-like ‘spiritual meditation’ was his first extended work for larger forces. Like the Hymnus paradisi (Naxos 8.570352), the Stabat Mater is a direct musical reponse to the death of the composer’s nine year-old son, and further reveals his mastery of choral and orchestral polyphony. The Te Deum signalled a fresh and new approach to settings of Anglican canticles.
