Rest in peace, Herbert

Today is the 121st anniversary of the birth of Herbert Howells.  Last year on this day I attended an all-HH Evensong at Gloucester Cathedral.

Today, I am saying a memorial Morning Prayer with intentions for HH, listening solely to his music (including Daniel Bara and East Carolina University’s performance of his Requiem), and reading a chapter of the new HH compendium.

HH is the on-going life-work research subject.  May he rest in peace.
