Herbert Howells: Minuet (Grace For A Fresh Egg)

Books | Bassoon, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Novello
Composer: Herbert Howells
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Herbert Howells (1892-1983) was an English composer and teacher, who is perhaps best known for his choral music in the Anglican tradition, most famously his voluminous settings of the evening canticles.

Minuet was composed in 1945 for solo Bassoon with Piano accompaniment. It was written for the birthday of Hugh Crosthwaite, an English academic and amateur bassoonist who was studying at that time at Cambridge, where Howells was working as an acting Organist for the duration of the war. It is subtitled Grace for a Fresh Egg; i.e., a thanksgiving for what was a rarity in wartime Britain.
