Description du produit
Composer and conductor Bob Chilcott (born 1955) has been steeped in the British choral tradition since he was a boy chorister. A former member of The Kings Singers, he is now one of the UKs most prolific and creative choral composers, writing appealingly direct and accessible music with memorable melodies reminiscent of John Rutter at his best. Of his most recent large-scale work, his Requiem (2010), Chilcott says he was initially terrified by the idea of writing a work with such a weight of history behind it, but he has certainly risen to the challenge: his Requiem is characterized by a gentle, forgiving atmosphere clearly modelled on Faurés Requiem, with a crystalline, reflective Pie Jesu for solo soprano at the emotional heart of the work. This and the other works performed here, all first recordings, are beautifully performed by Wells Cathedral Choir and Matthew Owens, The Nash Ensemble and two superb young soloists.
As a choral director and composer Bob Chilcott (b 1955) is revered. He understands choirs and gets the best from them. Little wonder. He himself is a cradle-chorister: as a boy he sang the Pie Jesu solo in the Choir of King's College, Cambridge's bestselling 1967 recording of Fauré's Requiem, stayed on as a choral scholar and eventually joined the King's Singers for 12 years as a tenor. His Requiem (2010), mostly set to Latin texts, pays homage to its great predecessors yet has its own distinctive, serene, meditative quality, beautifully rendered by the mixed voices of Wells Cathedral Choir, Laurie Ashworth (soprano) and Andrew Staples (tenor). --Observer,25/03/12
