Description:

Donald Nally and Corey Everly, conductors; Charles Foster, accompanist; Scott Dettra, organ 

The music of Herbert Howells continues to grow in stature as we view the 20th century from an ever-increasing distance. His extraordinary harmonic language and soaring, twisting melodic lines seem to imply there is something yet to come— an unresolved emotion. Performing his Te Deum Collegium Regale and the anthem “Thee Will I Love,” University Chorale explores his music for choir and organ in its historical context alongside works by Ralph Vaughan Williams and Gerald Finzi. Nationally recognized organ virtuoso Scott Dettra joins the ensemble for this look at British sacred music.

Gerald Finzi, My lovely one
Herbert Howells, Te Deum (Collegium Royale)
Ralph Vaughan Williams, O taste and see
Ralph Vaughan Williams, He that is down need fear no fall
Herbert Howells, My eyes for beauty pine
Herbert Howells, Levavi oculos meos

Herbert Howells, Thee will I love
