Chilcott: Everyone Sang

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Described by The Observer as "a contemporary hero of British Choral Music", Bob Chilcott is one of today's most widely performed composers of choral music. This programme includes première recordings of favourites such as A Little Jazz Mass, songs and carols on a variety of texts, and the wit, wisdom and drama of Aesop's Fables in which Chilcott makes musical references to Brahms and Schubert. Winner of the coveted BBC Choir of the Year award in 2010, the Wellensian Consort is one of the United Kingdom's leading chamber choirs.

Bob Chilcott's music has previously been included in the Naxos albums "A Winter's Light" (8.573030) and the children's choral selection "Pigs Could Fly" (8.572113) described as "first-rate, especially Bob Chilcott's 'Lily and the Rose'" by American Record Guide, but these are just the tip of a vast iceberg as far as his superbly crafted output is concerned. This program includes première recordings of some of Chilcott's most widely performed works, and the performances are in the safe hands of the young and vibrant Wellensian Consort: "This is a hugely accomplished choir, demonstrating technical mastery, smooth musicianship, and wonderful phrasing, producing a warm, fantastic sound throughout the range."
