Herbert Howells (1892-1983)

Liquid Architecture

Wednesday 13 February 2008 12:00-13:00 (Radio 3)

Repeated: Wednesday 13 February 2008 20:45-21:45 (Radio 3)

Buildings, and their acoustic possibilities, were a constant source of inspiration for Howells. Donald Macleod explores how the composer became a hot property for choral institutions wanting a made-to-measure commission.
