Product Description

Review

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

Impassioned and beautiful performances throughout this delightful disc. --Gramophone,June'12

There's plenty of fluid writing for the choir and two excellent soloists, whose interaction produces ravishing textures. Performance *** Recording ***** --BBC Music Magazine, June'12

Matthew Owens directs superlative performances from the choir, instrumentalists from the Nash Ensemble and organist Jonathan Vaughan. --IRR,June'12

3.0 out of 5 stars Consistently Amiable 6 April 2012
By Entartete Musik TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Chilcott's 2010 Requiem is a measured work - eschewing the high drama of many of his predecessors - it nevertheless poses a considerable challenge to its performers. The unbending legato and long breathless phrases stretch the Wells top line. If their energy flags once in a while, the sound is consistently amiable. And that same poise can be found in the Nash Ensemble and Jonathan Vaughn's accompaniment, as well as measured contributions from soprano Laurie Ashworth and tenor Andy Staples.

Yet while the Requiem offers a soothingly passive experience - the 'Pie Jesu' is an absolutely gem - the disc as a whole outstays its welcome. Chilcott's constantly contented response to faith sits uneasily with the our world. Outside the equivocal context of his Requiem, the listener will find little jeopardy in Chilcott's musical world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Proper choral music 3 April 2012
By Kludge
Format:Audio CD
Anyone looking for an antidote to Military Wives should try this. Proper choral music with a populist heart. Every choir in the country should be performing this music. Beautifully performed as well.
