In the vast choral repertoire of the twentieth century, the music of Herbert Howells stands apart: unmatched in its complexion of color and expressivity, and unfailing in its ability to move hearts. Gloriæ Dei Cantores pays tribute to Howells' gift of music to the church and the world, with this collection of choral works beloved on both sides of the Atlantic. This recording was made with generous support from the Herbert Howells Trust. “While the Gloriæ Dei Cantores’ recording is far superior in terms of sound and depth, they also bring an unencumbered and tradition-free approach to the music giving it more passion than is often heard.” —Audiophile Audition “Howells often conceived his works with the acoustical properties and character of specific buildings in mind…the organ consists of pipework from 12 instruments by EM Skinner and is entirely appropriate to accompany the works of Howells.” —American Record Guide
