Howells Inheritance; Take him, earth, for cherishing
Rubbra Festival Gloria ... a most elegantly arranged sequence of ' a cappella ' pieces by Herbert Howells and Edmund Rubbra. They are well-matched composers, stylistically not too far apart (if not in the end so very close); each of a polyphonic, ecclesiastical bent; each accepted for his master' craftsmanship but neither exactly popular or property known.

Symphony No. 3 played by the BBC Northern Orchestra, conducted by Clarence Raybould
Edmund Rubbra , whose Fourth Symphony was recently given its first per- formance at the Proms, is now at the height of his powers. He is certainly one of the outstanding figures in the music of our time. As a symphomst he has certain affinities with Brahms, notably in his fondness for contrapuntal texture, restrained orchestration, imposing musical architecture, and, perhaps above all. sincerity and seriousness of purpose.
His Symphony No. 3 achieved a great success on its first performance in Manchester last year. In writing of it, A. J. B. Hutchings claims that the work will be popular because Rubbra ' is like a speaker or poet whose most impassioned utterances are fashioned from the vernacular of household and trade
