Chilcott Gloria

OxfordMusic

for SATB and piano, or brass quintet, timpani, and organ
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’s note

I wrote this piece to mark the end of my time as Composer-in-Residence for Choralis, a 100-person mixedvoice

choir based in Washington, DC. When considering the Latin Gloria text, the model for me had to

be the wonderful setting by Antonio Vivaldi, a work that I know well as both a singer and a conductor. I

have always loved the rhythmic impulse of this piece, along with the freshness of its shapes and clarity of

textures, which combine with music that is both tender and deeply expressive.

I am grateful to Gretchen Kuhrmann, Artistic Director of Choralis, and to her colleagues and choir

members for championing a number of my works and for their enthusiasm and commitment to bringing

this new piece to life.
