for SSA and piano
Setting Christina Rossetti's poem 'Remember', this gentle piece was written in memory of the young people who lost their lives in the attack on Utoya, Norway in July 2011. Chilcott employs an elegant recurring melody and an undulating piano line, and the singers are encouraged to use a small amount of sign language to enhance the performance.
Remember me is featured on the Wroclaw Philharmonic Choir's CD of Bob Chilcott's music.
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.
