Bob Chilcott 5 Songs for Upper Voices

This exciting and accessible collection for upper voices (scored for SA choir and piano) features five songs by celebrated choral composer Bob Chilcott. Drawing on five very different texts, Chilcott guides the voices through a number of styles and moods; the songs include the rousing 'All for Love of One', gentle 'The Truth is Great', and thought-provoking 'All things pass'. The central song, 'Circles of Motion', is a fervent and positive setting of Joy Harjo's well-known 'Eagle Poem', and the collection is completed by the funky 'Red Boots On', which uses jazzy rhythms and harmonies to bring Kit Wright's text alive. This is Chilcott at his very best - a welcome addition to the repertoire of any upper-voice choir.

Composer’s notes<br />

<strong>for</strong> online perusal only<br />

All <strong>for</strong> Love of One: My intention with this piece was to write a real<br />

singing melody to reflect the passion and beauty of this fifteenthcentury<br />

text. It is designed as a two-part piece, but can equally be<br />

per<strong>for</strong>med in unison by singing the melody at bar 24 in the soprano part<br />

and at bars 31 and 55 in the alto part.<br />

The Truth is Great: I wrote this piece <strong>for</strong> a festival in Denver, the<br />

theme of which was nature and the environment. The lyrics reflect on<br />

how small we are in the great scheme of things. To me the sentiment is<br />

not earnest but wistful, with a touch of gentle humour. This piece can<br />

also be per<strong>for</strong>med as a unison song by omitting the alto part.<br />

Circles of Motion: This poem, by the living native-American poet<br />

Joy Harjo, has a wonderful strength and an affirming message, again<br />

reflecting on the inevitable circle of life. I imagine this song being sung<br />

with verve and a sense of empowerment.<br />

All things pass: I love the profound yet simple wisdom in this poem,<br />

which, as in the lyrics of the previous two songs, suggests that<br />

ultimately we have very little control over our destiny. I find this kind<br />

of sentiment very strengthening and com<strong>for</strong>ting, so have written music<br />

that will hopefully inspire positive and empowered singing.<br />

Red Boots On: This text was written by the English poet Kit Wright<br />

while he was living in Canada. I love this poem; it needs to be sung with<br />

a spikey, cheeky confidence, and have a touch of Joni Mitchell or the<br />

Chenille Sisters in the sound! The piece is written <strong>for</strong> four parts, but it<br />

can be sung with only two by omitting certain lines, as detailed in the<br />

footnote on the first page.

This exciting and accessible collection <strong>for</strong> upper voices (scored <strong>for</strong> SA<br />

choir and piano) features five brand-new songs by celebrated choral<br />

composer <strong>Bob</strong> <strong>Chilcott</strong>. Drawing on five very different texts, <strong>Chilcott</strong><br />

guides the voices through a number of styles and moods; the songs<br />

include the rousing ‘All <strong>for</strong> Love of One’, gentle ‘The Truth is Great’, and<br />

thought-provoking ‘All things pass’. The central song, ‘Circles of Motion’,<br />

is a fervent and positive setting of Joy Harjo’s well-known ‘Eagle Poem’,<br />

and the collection is completed by the funky ‘Red Boots On’, which uses<br />

jazzy rhythms and harmonies to bring Kit Wright’s text alive. This is<br />

<strong>Chilcott</strong> at his very best—a welcome addition to the repertoire of any<br />

upper-voice choir.<br />

<strong>Bob</strong> <strong>Chilcott</strong> has been involved with choral music all his<br />

life, first as a Chorister and then a Choral Scholar at King’s<br />

College, Cambridge. Later, he sang and composed music<br />

<strong>for</strong> 12 years with the King’s Singers. His experiences<br />

with that group, his passionate commitment to young and<br />

amateur choirs, and his profound belief that music can<br />

unite people, have inspired him both to compose full-time<br />

and, through proactive workshopping, to promote choral<br />

music worldwide.<br />
