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

Lullaby in Blue is an elegiac, gentle blues setting of William Blake's 'A Cradle Song'. These are some serious words, and it will be an arresting addition to any programme. * Thomas Lydon, Music Teacher, June 2012 * For something more jazzy, choirs will enjoy Bob Chilcott's Lullaby in Blue for two-part upper voices (with divisions). Its attractive melody has a jazz-inspired, bluesy piano accompaniment, with an optional double bass part. William Blake's text, 'Sweet dreams form a shade', would certainly provide an interesting addition to a Christmas service or concert. * Gordon Appleton, Church Music Quarterly, September 2012 *show more
