Herbert Howells (1892-1983)

Free Association

Thursday 14 February 2008 12:00-13:00 (Radio 3)

Repeated: Thursday 14 February 2008 20:45-21:45 (Radio 3)

'Architecture, Acoustic, Association' was Howells's compositional mantra. Donald Macleod considers the last of these three As with music inspired by a brass band competition, the Gloucestershire countryside and the assassination of a president.
