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:

Bob Chilcott's The Shepherd's Carol is a masterpiece of the genre. The anonymous words are very evocative and add to the sense of mystery created by the music. If you have the forces, this would be an excellent piece to perform. * MMA Ensemble September 2001 * Chilcott's work seems to occupy an increasingly central place in OUP's choral catalogue, and it is not hard to see why, for not only is Chilcott exceptionally well plugged-in to the national and international network of choral folk, his music is versatile, with plenty of ideas - moreover, it is exceptionally grateful to sing. At its best his work has a sort of unaffected, winning sentimentality, particularly in evidence in The Shepherd's Carol. Though written for King's College, Cambridge, its technical demands are unexceptional, the music spanning a graceful arch from opening, folk-song like soprano solo through to appassionata eight-voice climax and back again. * Matthew Greenall, The Singer June 02 * If you are looking for something new, exciting and challenging then this carol is ideal . . . Although this is a tricky setting, it is effective and lively. * Leah Perona-Wright, CMQ September 02 * There's a more overt King's College connection with The Shepherd's Carol. With this carol Chilcott joined the ever-expanding list of prominent composers who have been commissioned to write for the annual Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. I rather think this has become one of the composer's 'hits', judging by the number of times it is included on discs or live programmes of Christmas music. Rightly so, for it's a lovely piece, mainly gentle but achieving a brief, ecstatic climax. * John Quinn, MusicWeb International * Bob Chilcott wrote this for King's College Choir in 2000 to a text probably by Charles Causley. For my money, this is the most beautiful modern carol there is. It brings on cascades of tears every time. * John Rutter, The Telegraph, 6 January 2012 *
