This exciting new collection by Bob Chilcott gives a jazzy twist to nine favourite folk songs from around the world. The bass part, which forms part of the jazz-trio accompaniment, is notated with chord symbols and can be played as written or used as a guide from which the player may improvise freely.
Bob Chilcott has been involved with choral music all his life, first as a Chorister and then a Choral Scholar at King's College, Cambridge. Later, he sang and composed music for 12 years with the King's Singers. His experiences with that group, his passionate commitment to young and amateur choirs, and his profound belief that music can unite people, have inspired him both to compose full-time and, through proactive workshopping, to promote choral music worldwide.
