Review quote

Two new well-crafted anthems by Bob Chilcott are within the grasp of any amateur choir . . . My preference, though, is for the a cappella setting of George Herbert's Even-song, whose lilting triple-time metre contains rhythmic variety used with panache. * Peter Dale, Choir and Organ July 06 *show more

Later, he sang and composed music for 12 years with the King's Singers.
