for SATB unaccompanied
This is a beautiful setting of words from Act 3 Scene 2 of The Tempest. The opening soprano and tenor melody is based on a dreamlike, oscillating two-note cell which threads throughout the piece, broadening out into the climax of 'a thousand twangling instruments' before subsiding back into the opening calm.

Review quote

Bob Chilcott has two new a cappella settings that would delight an SATB choir capable of singing with assurance and ease, although neither is especially difficult, technically . . . The Isle is Full of Noises uses a simple, repeated phrase that is strongly rhythmical in its focus. Again, this is not technically difficult, but it does require singing to be controlled. * Malcolm Goldring, Music Teacher March 06 *
