Description

for tenor solo and SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied This reflective winter carol features a prominent melody line, taken in two verses by the tenor soloist, which is supported by a gentle accompanying figure in the other voices. The minor tonality reflects the sentiments of the newly written text by Charles Bennett; while we can present temporary gifts for the child of winter, only his arrival will bring 'our summer without end'.show more

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 worldwide.show more

Review quote

The contemporary poet, Charles Bennett, has supplied interesting texts for Gifts for the Child of Winter and Song of the Crib. Both are unaccompanied and employ divisi in all parts, so would challenge most parish church choirs, but will be relished by the experienced choral societies to which they are dedicated. * Gordon Appleton, RSCM, October 2014 *show more
