Herbert Howells' masterpiece, 'Pageantry' is set to play a major role in commemorating the great composer.

Herbert Howells’ 1935 masterpiece 'Pageantry' will be performed by Lydbrook Band, conducted by Ian Holmes this weekend in Howells’ home town of Lydney at St. Mary’s Church where he was a choir boy.

Plaque

A plaque in recognition of his immense musical achievements has been erected at St. Mary’s Church by the Herbert Howells Society, and the performance will provide a fitting musical reminder of the great composer talents.

The performance will be introduced by Professor Philip Wilby who will talk about the music and his time as a pupil of Howells.

New work

Professor Wilby will also play the organ in the UK premiere of his new work for brass band and organ ‘Beyond Far Horizons’. The work was originally commissioned by Lake Wobegon Brass Band of Minnesota and their conductor Michael Halstenson to celebrate their 20th anniversary this year.
