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

Review quote

Crossley-Holland's words are excellent and thought-provoking and Bob Chilcott has clothed them in a trademark melody that is meditative and lyrical. The end result of this happy marriage of words and music is a touching little composition. * John Quinn,, October 2017 * Commissioned for Harrow School Chapel Choir, Jesus Springing is typical of Chilcotts lyrical and accessible style, suited to parish and school choirs that can sing in four parts and manage divided sopranos. The accompaniment is pianistic in some respects, but actually better suited to the organ and none too difficult. The setting of Kevin Crossley-Holland's poem is strophic, though each verse is scored differently. The music remains in E major: there is not a single
accidental, giving a sense of gentle intensity. * Church Music Quarterly, December 2011 *
