Great British mezzo-soprano dies of myelomaOpera
The family has reported the death of Anne Howells, a soaring international mezzo at the Met, Vienna, Salzburg and elsewhere and one of the most agreeable and unfussy personalities on the world stage.
Anne was 81. She leaves a son and a daughter from two marriages, to fellow-singers Ryland Davies and Stafford Dean.
She will be remembered with immense affection and appreciation.
