for SATB and organ The four motets in this set are adapted from Bob Chilcott's large-scale choral work, Salisbury Vespers, which was premiered in Salisbury Cathedral in May 2009. Setting a variety of early Marian texts, the set includes the gentle and expressive 'I sing of a mayden' and the fervent 'Hail, Star of the sea most radiant'. Re-scored for SATB and organ, the motets will be welcomed by choirs of all sizes looking for a more intimate introduction to Chilcott's magnificent landmark work. The motets can be performed as a set or individually, and are suitable for concert and liturgical use. Accompaniments for instrumental ensemble or for brass and organ are available to hire separately for each of the accompanied motets.

Review quote

As usual the style is tuneful, accessible and deftly written for voices: the first and third are easily within the compass of most amateur choirs, the other two a little more difficult. * Music Teacher, December 10 *
