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:

The music for the upper-voice choir, in the third and fifth movements, simple and in unison for the most part, gives a good opportunity for youngsters to join adults in a concerted work - an increasingly popular format. For the SATB singers the challenges of tricky rhythm and occasional sly modulation would soon be surmounted, given the expertly grateful and encouraging part writing . . . Throughout, the music is unfailingly attractive, with lively ostinatos and cross-rhythms in the fast movements and, equally characteristic of Bob Chilcott's work, a delicate lyricism in the slow ones. This would be a happy, light-hearted and not too demanding item for a celebratory programme. * Howard Layfied, Mastersinger Spring 2002 * Bob Chilcott's Songs and Cries of London Town is described tongue-in-cheekily in the frontispiece as a 'capital' choral cantata. With London as its subject matter it is that, most certainly. It is also 'capital' in the old fogeyish sense of the word - good, very good . . . This is a work that would amply reward the attentions of any good choral society or strong school choir searching for a show-stopping 15-minute work with which to finish a concert. * Christopher Field, Music Teacher, August 02 *
