Stephen Cleobury and the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge celebrate the powerful, emotional and exuberant music of Herbert Howells with an album exploring the finest examples of his choral and orchestral music, as well as his writing for the organ.

Recorded with Britten Sinfonia and King’s Voices, this collection showcases the wide-reaching influence the College continues to have on musical culture, bringing together two alumni of King’s: Christopher Seaman (conductor, Cello Concerto), a graduate of King’s, and Guy Johnston (soloist, Cello Concerto), a former Chorister.
