Howells: Lambert's Clavichord; Howell's Clavichord. Hyperion has reissued John McCabe's 1994 recording of Herbert Howells' clavichord music under its Helios series. While other twentieth century composers were re-discovering the harpsichord, Howells instead found inspiration in another keyboard instrument.

Lambert's Clavichord & Howells' Clavichord. Superseded by CDH55152. Recording details: August 1993 Seldon Hall, Haberdashers' Aske's School, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom Produced by Paul Spicer Engineered by Keith Warren Release date: April 1994 Total duration: 77 minutes 17 seconds. Lambert’s Clavichord was written in 1927, and the two books of Howells’ Clavichord date from 1941 and 1961 respectively. The common thread between them is twofold: the recreation of the spirit of the Tudor keyboard dance pieces, à la Fitzwilliam Virginal Book (right down to the titles), and the immortalizing of many friends and colleagues through the dedication of each piece to a different person. The art of spanning the centuries has rarely been so convincingly achieved.
Lambert's Clavichord - Howells by John Paul. 02. Translation: 1892-1983. Translation: Extensive work for piano with works dedicated to well known composers, performers and clavichord maker Thomas Goff.
The clavichord produces sound by striking brass or iron strings with small metal blades called tangents. Vibrations are transmitted through the bridge(s) to the soundboard. YouTube Encyclopedic. 1/1. Views: 11 084. ✪ Friedrich Gulda erklärt das Clavichord (1981).
Lambert’s Clavichord; Howells’s Clavichord. Performer: John McCabe (piano). John McCabe’s excellent disc concentrates on the miniatures written for either piano or clavichord which were inspired by the example of the Tudor Fitzwilliam Virginal Book. They immortalise Howells’s friends through a series of musical portraits (as in Elgar’s Enigma Variations) and McCabe catches their mood perfectly. In the four items from Lambert’s Clavichord (Herbert, not Constant), the only music common to both discs, his clear and direct approach has the edge, though Fingerhut’s more indulgent manner remains admissible enough.
