Born in 1892, in Gloucestershire, Herbert Howells had his first instruction at the hands of Dr. Herbert Brewer, of Gloucester Cathedral. He was himself an articled pupil there for a time, coming in 1912 to the Royal College of Music in London with an open scholarship. After a brilliant career as a student, he joined the staff of the College and has since earned a distinguished position for himself among the younger native composers. He is at .home in every form of music, except opera, which he has not yet explored, and in all of them displays a sure hand and a real facility of invention. In spite of his duties in London, and the way in which the great world has captured so much of his gifts, Howells remains at heart a real West-countryman, with a keen interest in Gloucestershire.
