Described by The Observer as “a contemporary hero of British Choral Music”, Bob Chilcott is one of today’s most widely performed composers of choral music. This programme includes première recordings of favourites such as A Little Jazz Mass, songs and carols on a variety of texts, and the wit, wisdom and drama of Aesop’s Fables in which Chilcott makes musical references to Brahms and Schubert. Winner of the coveted BBC Choir of the Year award in 2010, the Wellensian Consort is one of the United Kingdom’s leading chamber choirs.

Bob Chilcott’s music has previously been included in the Naxos albums “A Winter’s Light” (8573030) and the children’s choral selection “Pigs Could Fly” (8572113) described as “first- rate, especially Bob Chilcott’s ‘Lily and the Rose’” by American Record Guide, but these are just the tip of a vast iceberg as far as his superbly crafted output is concerned. This program includes première recordings of some of Chilcott’s most widely performed works, and the performances are in the safe hands of the young and vibrant Wellensian Consort: “This is a hugely accomplished choir, demonstrating technical mastery, smooth musicianship, and wonderful phrasing, producing a warm, fantastic sound throughout the range.” (BBC Music Magazine)

The Observer

21st April 2013

“[Chilcott] seems impossible to ignore, probably because he writes such engaging, rewarding music. You can hear the influence of his years with the King's Singers in this recording: lots of imaginative harmony and sprightly word-painting...sung with warmth, precision and commitment by young alumni from Wells Cathedral school.”

BBC Music Magazine

June 2013


“Chilcott knows what works vocally. You can hear this particularly in A Little Jazz Mass, where he perfectly fits the words of the Latin text to the whippy, upbeat syncopations of the Kyrie and Gloria...All the shorter pieces are immediately attractive, and performed winningly.”

MusicWeb International

9th September 2013

“The music is consistently attractive and so is the singing. This is an auspicious debut CD by the Wellensian Consort. I’m certain we shall hear more of Bob Chilcott’s music on disc but I hope very much that it won’t be long before we have another release from this talented choir.”
