Notes & Reviews:

The works by Bob Chilcott (b. 1955), recorded here by the Nordic Chamber Choir/Chamber Choir of Europe, conducted by Nicol Matt, can be exuberant and rhythmic (The Making of the Drum), contemplative and thrilling (Songs and Cries of London Town) or passionate and frequently contrapuntal (My Prayer). Mr. Chilcott is one of the most widely performed choral music composers in the world. His large catalogue of published works reflects his wide taste in music styles and commitment to writing music both singable and communicative. "A contemporary hero of British choral music." (The Observer)
