January 2016


Chilcott's four-movement setting of the Latin Gloria will be welcomed by choirs looking for an uplifting and jubilant concert work. The driving 'Gloria in excelsis Deo' features syncopated rhythms and an upper-voice semi-chorus part in the 'Et in terra pax' section, which can be taken from the main choir. The tender yet majestic 'Domine Deus' leads into the lyrical 'Qui tollis peccata mundi', with interweaving melodic lines that express the solemnity of the text. Finally, the dancing 'Quonium tu solus sanctus' keeps singers on their toes with its upbeat tempo and lively cross-rhythms, culminating in exultant 'Amen's for a suitably exhilarating ending.

Composer: CHILCOTT, Bob (1954-)

The Heavenly Aeroplane

"The Heavenly Aeroplane" is full of Rutter's joie de vivre and can be performed with piano or with double bass/bass guitar and drums, or even with a full orchestra - parts are on hire from OUP. There are few musical difficulties but clearly the choir must enter the rock 'n' roll spirit and be prepared to snap their fingers to the beat. - Music Teacher Feb 2003

Regina Caeli

Originally written for SATB, this hymn to the "Queen of the Heavens" is a glorious work, replete with dramatic changes of mood and texture. The majestic chords of the opening bars quickly give way to a spirited exchange between the voices. This pattern of contrasts is repeated throughout the piece before the final jubilant chords fade away to pianissimo. This is an approachable and rewarding motet, appropriate for any time of the year and in particular, the Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Eastertide.

Composer: McDOWALL, Cecilia (1951-)
