          Malvern GB Semi-pro singer, amateur pianist.
          Where do I start? It is beautifully produced with crystal-clear print. The content is important as these are hitherto unpublished songs which Scott Crowne has lovingly researched and edited. All nine songs have the characteristic Howells hallmark, either in the harmonies and harmonic sequences or in the melodies. Howells' choice of texts is inspired, four of them from the late 16th or early 17th century the music of which period he was so much in sympathy with.
          There are none.
