9780193366961: Requiem: Vocal score

for soprano and tenor solo, SATB chorus, and orchestra or small ensemble Following the success of Salisbury Vespers, Bob Chilcott further explores the large-scale liturgical genre with his solemn yet uplifting Requiem. Setting words from the Missa pro defunctis and the Book of Common Prayer, the work gives a new slant to established texts: a beautiful setting of 'Thou knowest, Lord' sits alongside the powerful 'Offertorio', driving 'Sanctus', and enchanting 'Pie Jesu'. Deserving of a place among the canon of previous settings, Chilcott's Requiem is an elegy for the modern day. Accompaniments for orchestra and small ensemble are available on hire, and the piano reduction in the vocal score may be adapted for performance on the organ.

About the Author:

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.

Review:

The Requiem, set for soprano and tenor soloist, choir, organ, three woodwind instruments, horn and timpani, provides an inventive combination that subtly enhyances the text without overwhelming it. The Requiem comes out of the same genre as Faure and Durufle. * Shirley Ratcliffe, Choir & Organ May 2012 * Chilcott is recognisably his own man, both in the sweetness of the melodic invention and in the cleanness of his design . . . With no Dies Irae, this is for the most part a gentle, tender Requiem, and at 35 minutes, not over-long. Available in versions for chamber orchestra and ensemble as well as organ accompaniment, its modest scale, musical quality and straightforward parts for choir and soloist should ensure it many performances over the coming years. * Matthew Greenall, The Singer, May 2010 * A major addition to the choral repertoire. This is not music for mourning...it is a work of meditation and reflection. Chilcott's Requiem is a major work, and should be heard. * Bob Briggs, Seen & Heard International Website * Chilcott's familiar harmonic and rhythmic fingerprints are much in evidence in this highly approachable and attractive piece. The choral writing is in four parts throughout and is not difficult to master. The 7/8 Sanctus might catch you out on a first read-through but it's an infectious scherzo movement that is guaranteed to be enjoyed by performers and audiences alike. With OUP's beautifully produced vocal score, Chilcott's Requiem looks like a winner. * Philip Reed, Choir & Organ, May/June 2010 *
