Brightness ; The Good Side of Me
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.
'Bob Chilcott has two new a cappella settings that would delight an SATB choir capable of singing with assurance and ease, although neither is especially difficult, technically. You and Me shows why Chilcott is such a successful and popular composer for choirs. He has an instinctive understanding of what works for singers - whether for younger or older voices - and manages to lift the texts off the page through gentle but bouncy rhythms and subtle dynamics.'
