for SATB with tenor solo unaccompanied This is an atmospheric setting of an anonymous fifteenth-century text. The exquisite tenor solo at the opening and the calm intensity of the middle section attest to Chilcott's gift for writing beautiful melodies. This would make a wonderful addition to any concert.
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.
