Howells, Herbert: Country Pageant & A Little Book of Dances

£5.25

These two sets of pieces display all the characteristics of the music of this fine English composer – modal inflections, the influence of 16th-century English composers, quirky fast movements, and, in the piece ‘There was a most beautiful lady’, elegiac melodies of great beauty.
