Bob Chilcott: Chorwerke / Choral Works

Bob Chilcott: Chorwerke / Choral Works


This music by British composer Bob Chilcott is of the sort meant to be accessible to ordinary church and community choirs. As such, it's a great success and can be heartily recommended to choir directors in the U.S., where Chilcott is less well known than John Rutter. The program on this German release (with performances by combined Nordic and pan-European choirs) is divided in half, although there's not a specific indication of that division. The first half consists of secular music, and it's absolutely delightful: completely accessible, yet totally original in conception. The highlight is The Making of the Drum, a five-movement work with texts by Barbadian-British poet Kamau Brathwaite describing aspects of drum construction and music that embodies the resulting drum noise. It sounds cornball, but the idea is executed in such a lively way that it's hard to imagine any choir or its audience emerging unsatisfied. In the same vein is The Runner, an excerpt from a larger work called The Modern Man I...
