Herbert Norman Howells

Herbert Norman Howells (1892-1983)


Herbert Howells was an English composer, born in Lydney in Gloucestershire. He gained his musical background in the traditions of the Church of England, as both a chorister and an organist, and it is in this vein that the majority of his works were written. He studied under Herbert Brewer at Gloucester Cathedral and was deeply influenced by the writing of Vaughan Williams and the much earlier Tudor school of composition. Much of his music draws on this Renaissance heritage, reworking it in new and original ways.
