White waves on the water is an upbeat, likeable setting and presents a good challenge for a choir of upper voices. This is harmonically easy on the ear, and the flute adds another dimension to the whole piece. ( The Organ August 07)
The tonic minor take on the opening theme a little way in is a fun self-critique by Chilcott, in a piece that features an unapologetically cheesy chord structure. Some well-judged canonic writing for the second choir whips up a pleasing diatonic froth as a backdrop to the reprise, a fine musical portrait of rippling waves. ( Thomas Lydon, Music Teacher, June 09)
for SSA double choir, piano, and flute obbligato This is a lyrical and compelling upper-voice setting of Joseph Mary Plunkett's 'White waves on the water'. Chilcott expertly employs the double SSA forces, resulting in a colourful array of textures and vocal combinations, from unison to six parts. The voices are accompanied by a florid flute obbligato and a piano accompaniment.
