Bob Chilcott has a established an international reputation as one of Britain's most versatile and popular composers of choral music. He began his career as a chorister and choral scholar in the choir of King's College, Cambridge, under the leadership of Sir David Wilcocks and Philip Ledger. For twelve years, he was a member of the renowned vocal ensemble The King's Singers, for whom he wrote numerous a cappella and accompanied pieces and arrangements, many of which have been featured on the group's recordings for BMG and EMI Records. It was this experience that led him to full-time composition, fulfilling a desire to extend his commitment to young and to amateur choirs through his own brand of accessible music, which allows him to share his deep belief in the communicative and social aspects of music. Bob Chilcott currently conducts the chorus at the Royal College of Music in London and is in great demand as a guest conductor and leader of choral workshops worldwide.
As an ex-singer himself (in both King's College Chior and the King's Singers), Bob Chilcott knows what works vocally. You can hear this particuloarly in A Little Jazz Mass, where he perfectly fits the words of the Latin text to the whippy, upbeat syncopations of the Kyrie and Gloria . . . The work could have easily been kitschily condescending but actually works excellently. * Terry Blain, BBC Music Magazine, June 2013 * There are plenty of highlights . . . from the Gloria's opening swing bass and final dramatic cut-off to the concluding moody, bluesy Agnus. Although ostensibly a concert piece, it wouldn't take a huge leap of imagination to see this work in a liturgical context, while the piano part is so well written that effective performance requires only a moderate level of improvisational skill, if any. * Matthew Greenall, The Singer June 07 * Chilcott's Little Jazz Mass employs a creative and engaging musical language right from the start . . . The writing is largely intuitive and straightforward, although singers will have to be prepared for plenty of stylish jazz crunch-chords . . . Highly recommended for choirs of mixed-ability upwards. * Tom Wiggall, Music Teacher July 07 * Chilcott's is a remarkable achievement in that he has written music that is approachable but never sugary, and jazz-infused but in no way irreligious. Doubtless there will be some who will consider a Jazz Mass inappropriate for liturgical use, but that number will surely diminish upon hearing either of Chilcott's . . . The Kyrie from the Little Jazz Mass and the Agnus Dei from the Nidaros Jazz Mass is where to start if you need to be convinced of this genre. * Jeremy Summerly, Choir & Organ November 2012 *
