for SAATTBB unaccompanied What sweeter music is an atmospheric setting of Robert Herrick's popular Christmas text. The carol opens with hushed, interweaving choral lines, creating a soft veil of sound that expands texturally and dynamically into an expressive central section. The sustained melodic interest in every part combines to create a gorgeous work that choirs will find a true pleasure to sing. What sweeter music will be included on a forthcoming CD by Commotio.show more

Review quote

Bob Chilcott writes superbly well for voices - as demonstrated in these three such different settings. What sweeter music, written to be sung by the choir of Westminster Abbey, is a complex piece on paper although comparatively simple in its effect. Tight contrapuntal imitation, gradually expanding from a unison, creates a pulsating background to a soaring soprano melody. All parts blossom in texture and dynamics for the final line of each verse. * James L. Montgomery, Church Music Quarterly, September 13 *show more

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
