Bob Chilcott: The Angry Planet

£12.00

 The three works on this 2CD set further confirm Chilcott’s status as one of the world’s most popular active choral composers. The Angry Planet was a commission inspired by conductor David Hill for the BBC Proms in 2012, and combines the precision and skill of the BBC Singers and The Bach Choir with the exuberance of a host of young persons and Children’s choirs including The Young Singers, London Youth Choir and Finchley Children’s Music Group.

What people are saying

" This work, together with the other more recent ones on CD 1, is a fine achievement, and simply adds to Bob Chilcott’s profile as one of the most brilliant composers of vocal music around today. He is also a major ambassador for the simple undying joy of singing." Music Web International, July 2015

" This recording…is directed by David Hill and expertly weaves the professionalism of the BBC Singers and Bach Choir with the touching innocence of a mix of young choirs…this two-CD set makes a compelling case for Chilcott as today’s pre-eminent composer for all voices." The Observer, July 2015

" Bob Chilcott is a most effective musical communicator and these scores display his gifts as a choral composer to the full. The performances are consistently excellent and the recorded sound is truthful and clear." Music Web International, September 2015

"Approachable and highly enjoyable." Planet Hugill, October 2015

"Committed, exact singing from all." Choir & Organ, November 2015
