for SSAATTBB unaccompanied Advent Antiphons is an exquisite concert setting of the Great O Antiphons. Chilcott's writing for double choir is masterful; he embroiders a beautifully-textured work in which echoes of plainchant combine with richly expressive harmony. Without doubt, this is some of Chilcott's finest music: subtle yet potent, haunting and uplifting. Vocal scores are also available on hire/rental.

About Bob Chilcott

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

Review quote

The music is based on the lovely original plainsong and is often sonorous, mostly readily singable . . . and occasionally impassioned . . . In conclusion, this is thoughful music and, while it will be a challenge to make it effective in performance, it reinforces this composer's growing reputation for craftsmanship and integrity. * Marcus Huxley, Mastersinger, Spring 06 *
