Description

for SATB and organ This beautiful setting of the Beatitudes from Matthew's gospel exemplifies the composer's skill and versatility in writing for mixed voices. He leads the choir smoothly through a range of keys and moods, from the gentle simplicity of the opening 'Bless'd are the poor in spirit' to the more dramatic and colourful 'Bless'd are ye, when men shall revile you'.show more

Review quote

Two new well-crafted anthems by Bob Chilcott are within the grasp of any amateur choir. The Beatitudes is the more immediately accessible of the two with its filmic theme and gentle added-note organ harmonies. * Peter Dale, Choir and Organ July 06 * Bob Chilcott seems now to be very much the leading figure within the OUP stable of choral composers, even having his own individually styled imprint within the catalogue . . . Chilcott's carefully structured anthem, for SATB choir and organ, employs characteristically warm, major-key harmonies, and throws the clinching emphasis on the final verses of Christ's sermon which clebrate the role of the persecuted in the Kingdom of Heaven. * Matthew Greenall, The Singer, June 06 *show more
