Herbert Howells was among a galaxy of famous students taught composition by Charles Villiers Stanford at the Royal College of Music. Through their canticles and anthems the two men transformed Anglican sacred music. Among the highlights of Canticum’s programme are Stanford’s operatic “For lo, I raise up” and his sunny A major setting of the Magnificat. From Howells come the Requiem, a work marked with the stamp of his genius, and “Take him, earth, for cherishing”, his lament for the assassinated President Kennedy.
