International Record Review
Everything in this finely executed disc is worth hearing.
This recording brings together, for the first time, Howells' complete extant Latin church music for Westminster Cathedral, composed when he was a student of Stanford at the RCM. It also features other significant, rarely-heard music, including a first recording of the extraordinary Holst-like anthem When first thine eies unveil and another premiere, Levavi oculos, Paul Spicer's reconstruction of a wedding anthem for Hereford Cathedral. This is the third recording in a continuing collaboration between SOMM and Paul Spicer's Birmingham Conservatoire Chamber Choir, which continues to yield many riches.
