One of Britain’s foremost choirs partners two requiems to showcase Temple Church’s celestial acoustic. Fauré’s much-loved Requiem needs no introduction but, for many, Howells’ will be a delightful new discovery. Remaining unknown for almost fifty years until just before the composer’s death in the 1980s, it is deemed by many to be one of the most beautiful and heart-wrenchingly moving works in the English sacred music canon.
“Too many felicities of colour, nuance and detail to mention
… the Holst Singers gave everything.” The Critics Circle
