Yasashisa to Sabishisa no Tenshi (Tender and Lonesome Angel)

This work creates an image of a pure and tender angel. It is not religious as the poet's idea is centered on a pure heart. He said, "Two wings of my angel symbolize his tenderness and lonesomeness. My angel knows both these sides, so I can say it has truly tender mind." This collection is composed of sensitive "Orugoru" (Musical Box), expressive and unaccompanied "Anata no Mimi" (Your Ears), cosmic and harmonic "Hiraku" (Open), gentle "Akarui Heya de" (In the Sunny Room) and concluding "Hohoemi" (Smile) that lets us embrace a little warm light. While listening to this work, you will be able to feel the existence of a tender angel.

The Sun and Stars are Mine

The Sun and Stars Are Mine is a lyrical setting of words by the metaphysical poet and clergyman Thomas Traherne (1637-74). With a rippling piano accompaniment, melodious vocal lines, and warm harmonies, Chilcott's setting captures the wonder in the text, as Traherne reflects with awe on the transient nature of life: 'When silent I so many thousand years, . . . how could I lips or hands or eyes or ears perceive?'

Here in my heart

Here in my Heart is an uplifting and optimistic setting of an original text by the composer that explores the power of the natural world to fill the heart with song.

Novello Choral Showtunes

All I Ask Of You is the love song that triggers the Phantom of The Opera's jealous campaign of retribution in Andrew Lloyd Webber's legendary musical; Cliff Richard and Sarah Brightman took it for a spin in 1986 and had a hit single.
Big Spender became even more popular than the 1966 musical from which it came - 'Sweet Charity' - and Shirley Bassey did much to popularise it later.
Written specifically for Colm Wilkinson, Bring Him Home is the emotional song from Act II of Les Misérables while I Have A Dream is a no less emotional Abba number that is included in the record-breaking stage musical Mamma Mia.
Last Night Of The World is the haunting dance hall song from Miss Saigon that marks the fateful promise made by the US airman to take Kim with him when he leaves Vietnam.
This volume in the Novello Choral Pops collection contains all five of these musical theatre favourites, arranged for SATB Choir with Piano accompaniment.

A Traditional Christmas

Arranged for SATB, here are five all-time classic Christmas songs with a warm and nostalgic feeling.
O Holy Night and Silent Night both originated in 19th century Europe while Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas was introduced by Judy Garland in a 1944 Hollywood musical. Silver Bells was a 1950 Livingston-Evans pop hit but surely the most famous of them all is Irving Berlin's White Christmas, the 1940 song for which its composer had high hopes the moment he completed it. Conceived as a nostalgic number, White Christmas was a slow starter but went on to become a huge success and, for many, the ultimate Christmas song.
These arrangements lend themselves to being performed separately or in seamless succession for a Classic Christmas recital audiences will love.

Sixties Hits

The Mamas & The Papas' hymn to the West Coast state California Dreamin' was actually written in chilly New York City by John and Michelle Phillips before they even formed the band that made them famous.
Simon & Garfunkel were New York through and through and Simon's jaunty song about the Queensboro Bridge - aka Feelin' Groovy - uses its local colloquial name.
Skeeter Davis, born Mary Frances Penick, was the survivor of a car crash that killed her singing partner Betty Jack Davis. They had enjoyed some success as The Davis Sisters but The End Of The World was the biggest hit of Skeeter's subsequent solo career.
In My Room saw The Beach Boys moving indoors from all that sun and sand and recording one of their most reflective and lovely songs.
Meanwhile the British invasion was threatening the pop status quo in America and Can't Buy Me Love, from the film Hard Day's Night, gave The Beatles yet another number one in the US charts.
Novello Choral Pops: Sixties Hits contains these five decade-defining hits, newly arranged for SATB Choir with Piano accompaniment.

Baby in an ox's stall

The tune of this carol begins with a soprano solo in the warm key of F major and it gradually flowers into full SATB textures with a soprano descant, modulating in later verses. It includes a couple of false relations which colour the melody at certain points in a slightly rebellious way. The composer have always had a bit of an inner schoolchild, and he think this comes through in this carol. He is also a fan of Peter Warlock's music, and some of the harmonic alterations he has used perhaps owe a debt of gratitude to him in some way. With Baby in an ox’s stall the composer has created a carol which I hope can be enjoyed as something a little bit fun and spicy, like a Christmas lunch with all the trimmings.
