About the Author:


Bob Chilcott has a established an international reputation as one of Britain's most versatile and popular composers of choral music. He began his career as a chorister and choral scholar in the choir of King's College, Cambridge, under the leadership of Sir David Wilcocks and Philip Ledger. For twelve years, he was a member of the renowned vocal ensemble The King's Singers, for whom he wrote numerous a cappella and accompanied pieces and arrangements, many of which have been featured on the group's recordings for BMG and EMI Records. It was this experience that led him to full-time composition, fulfilling a desire to extend his commitment to young and to amateur choirs through his own brand of accessible music, which allows him to share his deep belief in the communicative and social aspects of music. Bob Chilcott currently conducts the chorus at the Royal College of Music in London and is in great demand as a guest conductor and leader of choral workshops worldwide.

Review:

Remarkable contrasts would have to be the trademark of Chilcott's work. From the crisp, buoyant phrases of the 'Dixit Dominus' to the unaccompanied legato lines of the motet 'I Sing of a Mayden', the listener got a sense of a myriad of styles that seemed to inform Chilcott's journey as a composer. Though it was is considered one 'major' work, Chilcott's Salisbury Vespers is like listening to several mini-masterworks in the context of one performance. Perhaps the crowning achievement of this is the large scale, multi-movement 'Magnificat', which brings the vespers to its end. The 'Song of Mary', extolling praise to God, took on new meaning as each phrase was given its own musical contrast. In the 'Deposuit Potentes', the full opening compliment of voices and instruments swelled to a full forte, with a remarkable contrasting section that leaned toward a dark, mysterious sound. * Patrick D. McCoy, www.washingtonlife.com, June 15 *

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2009. Sheet music. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. for chorus, chamber choir, and children s choir, or large divisi chorus, with orchestra and organ or brass ensemble and organ. Showcasing Chilcott s exceptional talent for large-scale choral writing, Salisbury Vespers pays homage to this most ancient of services, combining settings of the traditional Vespers psalms with anonymous early texts and words from the Sarum Primer of 1516. Marian motets punctuate the psalm settings, and the work is concluded with a substantial setting of the Magnificat, using the plainsong melody from the same section in Monteverdi s Vespers of 1610. With driving rhythms, passages of reflective contemplation, and expansive, powerful textures, this is sure to become a mainstay of the modern choral repertory for years to come. Written for large mixed choir, chamber choir, and children s choir, Salisbury Vespers could equally be performed by a large mixed choir, with the parts for chamber choir and children s choir being sung by smaller sections taken from within the large choir. Vocal scores are available on sale and on hire/rental. Seller Inventory # AOP9780193363953
