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 more

Review quote

Of all the Christmas pieces I've been sent so far, this is the one that has stood out: I'll definitely be foisting it on my choir for this year's carol service. Kevin Crossley-Holland's icy, bracing text has provided ample inspiration for Chilcott, who has created a carol that is at once beautiful and faintly unsettling . . . The most magical moment for me is the return of the original melody on page 7, a moment to make the members of your congregation hold their breath. * Jonathan Wikeley, Music Teacher, Sept 09 *show more
