Herbert Howells: Fantasy String Quartet (Parts)

Books | String Quartet

Catalogue No: JC93030
Artist: Herbert Howells
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Herbert Howells was an English composer, organist, and teacher, most famous for his large output of Anglican Church music. However, for this reason his secular compositions tend to be unreasonably neglected. This edition of the Fantasy String Quartet has set out to change this. The delightful piece of chamber music makes full use of the unique characteristics of String instruments, giving all four players equal parts and opportunities to shine – separately as well as together as an ensemble. Possibly inspired by Vaughan Williams’ Phantasy Quintet, the Fantasy String Quartet requires skilful mastery of their instrument from each player. Performance time is ca. 13 minutes.

        Archive prints can be of VERY variable quality. This is first rate - good clear reproduction of original edition printed on good quality paper and presented in generic but smart fold over sleeve. Very reasonable cost too - very good to be able to source such beautiful but rare chamber music this way. Impressed with this archive service and will be trawling the back catalogue for similar items.
