    Yes dear sir, with Howells you do no wrong - such sublime beauty.............
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    As you say sublime beauty, I must say though that some of his works do not appeal to me.
    Cheers MIKE.

    I used to have a double-cd set of Howells works that was issued by Hyperion some years ago containing his major organ and choral works. Most of it excellent but one or two duds that Howells wrote.
