Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Former King's singer Bob Chilcott conducts a stellar array of his choral music in a collaborative performance with the Wroclaw Philharmonic Choir. Described by the Observer as a "contemporary hero of British Choral Music", Bob Chilcott works tirelessly as a composer and choral conductor - August 2012 saw the first performance of The Angry Planet in the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, and he has recently completed commissions for The Bach Choir, BBC Singers and National Youth Choir of Great Britain. This disc follows two previous collections of Chilcott's music on Signum - all conducted by the composer: Making Waves (SigCD142) and Man I sing (SigCD100 - featuring the BBC Singers).

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
Chilcott is known for his gentle, lyrical, soft-rock choral style. 'The Heart-in-Waiting' composed for the VocalEssence Choir of Minneapolis is one such stirring example. The Wroclaw Choir sings handsomely and are presented in attractively cool, clear sound.
