About Howell Glynne:

Howell Glynne (24 January 1906 – 24 November 1969) was an operatic bass. He was born in Britain but lived the latter years of his life in Canada, and taught singing at the University of Toronto.

He was born in Britain as Howell Glynne Jones on 24 January 1906, in Swansea, South Wales. He studied under Ben Davies and Reinhold von Warlich.

He made his operatic debut in 1931 as Sparafucile in Rigoletto.

In the 1950s he appeared at Covent Garden, London, and other venues in Boris Godunov, Fidelio, The Bohemian Girl, Der Rosenkavalier, Le coq d'or, Aida, The Midsummer Marriage and other operas, Die Fledermaus and La Cenerentola. He appeared as Fiesco in the English revival of Simon Boccanegra, with Arnold Matters in the title role. In 1962 he sang Pooh-Bah in a radio broadcast of The Mikado.

He created the roles of Ford in the first professional performance of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Sir John in Love (April 1946), Joseph Lavatte in Sir Arthur Bliss's opera The Olympians (1949), and in Canada, the Hon William McDougall in Harry Somers’ opera Louis Riel (1967). He appeared as the Ghost in the first performance in English of Humphrey Searle's opera Hamlet, in Toronto in February 1969.

His students included Stafford Dean. His recordings include excerpts from Simon Boccanegra, Merrie England, The Merry Widow, and a complete Tosca (as the Sacristan, to Renata Tebaldi's Tosca).
