Three of the finest of all settings of the English language canticles. Over the past quarter of a century, Howells has emerged as among the greatest and certainly most widely performed composers of choral liturgical works of the last hundred years. At last his most important Services appear in a series of four handsome collections that link geographically the cathedral choirs for which they were written, newly edited with interpretative notes by David Hill.
