About the Author

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. Susan Knight is Founder and Artistic Director of the Newfoundland Symphony Youth Choir and Festival 500. She is active as a guest conductor, adjudicator, lecturer, keynote speaker, and advocate, and has served in executive position within provincial and national music and educational organizations.


Volumes such as this fill a valuable gap in the market. The international dimension also makes of them a labour of love for the ediitng team. Twenty-nine composers from 27 countries, each writing a carol in his or her own language (and I counted 20 different languages!) with most carols needing their own alternative text in English and a phonetic pronunciatin guide - it hardly bears thinking of! Such projects do not seem to daunt the team at OUP, however ... However, there is also music reflective of American spirituals, African praise songs and Latin rhythms, to name just a few of the world traditions that should make of this volume a stimulating source book for choir directors. Matthew Greenall, The Singer Oct 06 There are 29 pieces, and many of them are very beautiful. It will be a happy day when a wide international selection of repertoire is regularly available for choirs to try, and initiatives like these are, I hope, leading the way. Paul Ayres, Sheet Music Review Sept 06 It's wonderful, too, to be able to access the wealth of material from the ex-East European countries, with delightful arrangements from Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Poland and Slovenia. The UK isn't forgotten - Bob Chilcott offers his own setting of Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day - another must. Malcolm Goldring, Music Teacher March 06
