'Howard, catching the authentic tinge of hysteria, mounts swiftly upwards in an ecstasy that burns away awareness of mere notes' (Classic CD)
In domum Domini ibimus and O Roma nobilis are both straight transcriptions of choral pieces, as is Slavimo slavno Slaveni! (a play on Old Slavonic words, roughly meaning ‘Slavs let us praise the glorious Slavs!’)—a hymn in honour of the millenium of the arrival in Moravia of Saints Kyril and Mefodi.

from notes by Leslie Howard 1990
