In this re-release, digitally remastered like all the other recordings this month, Richard Hickox conducts the City of London Sinfonia, the orchestra he founded in 1971, in works for strings by Herbert Howells. Howells is perhaps best known for his choral music but the works here demonstrate his profound love of the string sound. Beginning the disc is the highly personal Concerto, sketched shortly after the death of both Sir Edward Elgar and his only son, Michael Kendrick Howells. The central slow movement, in which Hickox 'finds an extra pain and subsequent meditative rapture' (Hi-Fi News), is the elegiac emotional heart of the work and bears the note, 'In memoriam, E.E. (1934) and M.K.H. (1935)'. The Elegy is another piece 'in memoriam', this time of a friend of Howells's, killed in the war. The final two works are somewhat lighter in tone. The four-movement Suite was written with the direct and vigorous tunefulness and rhythm of Holst's St Paul's Suite in mind and the Serenade is a short, delightful scherzo-like movement that demonstrates the brilliance of Howells's string technique. The release is a part of Chandos' Richard Hickox Legacy series, marking the late great conductor's contribution to the recording catalogue.
