Compositions
Herbert Howells

(1892 - 1983)
After two years as an articled pupil at Gloucester Cathedral, Herbert Howells won an open scholarship in 1912 to the Royal College of Music, where he studied with Stanford (composition) and Charles Wood (counterpoint). Once in London, his earliest works quickly gained attention - in 1913 his Mass in the Dorian Mode was given at Westminster Cathedral and the First Piano Concerto received its premiere at Queen's Hall under Stanford. Howells's first position (sub-organist at Salisbury Cathedral) was cut short because of ill health, and he returned to the RCM in 1920 as a teacher of composition. Other appointments included the post of Director of Music at St Paul's Girls' School, Hammersmith, in succession to Holst (1936) and the King Edward VII Professorship of Music at London University (1950). He was awarded the CBE in 1953 and was made a Companion of Honour in 1972.
