Collection: Choral Collection
Subcollection: Choral and Organ

For 32 years the Abbey School Choir sang daily evensong in Tewkesbury Abbey and one of their final services was captured for posterity by Delphian. In this recording swansong, the choir offers a treasurable memento of a uniquely English Office; complete with lessons and prayers, this sumptuous tapestry of Anglican jewels also includes the first recording of Gabriel Jackson’s refulgent new setting of the Evening Canticles. Reborn as Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum, the choir was immediately signed by Delphian and has embarked on a series of much-lauded recordings.

Piano Music by Herbert Howells & Bernard Stevens - Jeremy Filsell - Piano

Piano Music by Herbert Howells & Bernard Stevens - Jeremy Filsell - Piano
ID: GMCD7119
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Neither Herbert Howells nor Bernard Stevens were prolific composers, and both - for different reasons - found themselves sidelined by more fashionable figures during their lifetimes. But the integrity of their music, the inherent nobility of their chosen expression, and their distinctive individuality, have ensured that their music has not died, but has found new and exciting champions - and responsive and eager audiences - amongst the younger music-lovers and record-buyers of today. This is all to the good, and when we hear such immediately compelling music as Howells’s three pieces from his Opus 14, alongside his much later Sonatina of 1971 (written in his 80th year) we must wonder as to why this music has been so comparatively overlooked.

The same is also true of the piano music of the brilliant Bernard Stevens. There are many who feel, with much justification, that Stevens’s reputation as a composer suffered greatly, and unfairly, from his championship of Communism - although he resigned from the Party following the Russian invasion of Hungary in 1956 - and yet his music speaks to us purely as music, and as nothing else. His voice, like Howells’s, is a distinctive one, music by a composer with something to say and - more importantly - with the technical means to say it.

The result is a body of piano music to set alongside his noble symphonies and concertos. The Sonata in One Movement is a fine work of considerable integrity and individuality - like the two other Stevens pieces on this disc, it demands a player of technical ability as well as of musical command, a player such as we find in the gifted pianist Jeremy Filsell, whose commitment to the music of both these English masters can be clearly discerned in his brilliant and sensitive playing.
