With Heart and Voice ® Program 1839

Suggested Broadcast: Sunday, September 30, 2018

One of the defining events in Herbert Howells’ life was the death of his nine-year-old son, Michael, from polio in 1935. It had a profound effect on him, and many of his later works. As we mark the Feast of St. Michael on September 29, we’ll hear several of Howells’ works relating to both St. Michael, and his son Michael. And we’ll hear organ music from Coventry Cathedral… formally named St. Michael’s Cathedral.
