Released in September 2014 on Naxos. Featuring David Hill, The Bach Choir, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Benjamin Hulett and Alison Hill.
The Stabat Mater is a direct musical response to the death of Howells’ nine-year-old son, showcasing his mastery of choral and orchestral polyphony. The disc also features the world premiere recording of Sine Nomine, and the first recording of the Collegium Regale Te Deum in its choral and orchestral version.
The Bach Choir is very grateful to the Herbert Howells Trust for its generous support, without which this recording would not have been possible.
