Review quote

The tonic minor take on the opening theme a little way in is a fun self-critique by Chilcott, in a piece that features an unapologetically cheesy chord structure. Some well-judged canonic writing for the second choir whips up a pleasing diatonic froth as a backdrop to the reprise, a fine musical portrait of rippling waves. * Thomas Lydon, Music Teacher, June 09 * White waves on the water is an upbeat, likeable setting and presents a good challenge for a choir of upper voices. This is harmonically easy on the ear, and the flute adds another dimension to the whole piece. * The Organ August 07 *show more
