Calton Consort: Holst & Howells on Saturday 1st April 2023

Daughter of Gustav Holst, Imogen composed a great deal of music, much of it remaining unpublished. Imogen studied composition under the tutelage of Herbert Howells and her Mass in A minor was written in 1927 while she was studying under Vaughan Williams at the Royal College of Music.

Also programmed is Howells' Requiem written in 1932/33 and his notable motet, "Take Him, Earth, for Cherishing" written in memory of the assassinated John F Kennedy, this year being the 60th anniversary.

Music Genres: 

Choral, Classical
