Review quote

Chilcott opens with a two-part vocal horn call and builds an answer with the skeleton of a II7 chord heading towards a unison dominant, convincingly updating this most traditional of devices with some hallmark Chilcott harmony. The theme is put into a different key for the middle section and reprised in the home key. The work ends on the unison dominant, an imperfect cadence but a most satisfying ending. A great response to Philip Sidney's text. * Thomas Lydon, Music Teacher, June 09 *show more
