Man I Sing

The world-renowned choral composer and conductor Bob Chilcott leads the BBC Singers as well as the internationally recognised soloists Simone Rebello and Paul Silverthorne in these new performances of some of his best and most well-loved choral works.

He has the knack of exploring highly effective, uncomplicated choral devices, and providing both singers and listeners with a complete cycle that leaves them fulfilled yet still prepared for more' It is all splendidly entertaining. - Choir and Organ

"Bob Chilcott’s music is audience-friendly; no one is better at writing tuneful, rhythmic, fun music, but nevertheless it has a transient air. This cannot be said of his settings of sacred texts. Impressive is the beautiful Great O Antiphons (Salisbury Rite), Pange lingua and The Last Invocation. And Every Stone Shall Cry is a minor masterpiece and his setting of the secular text Simple Pictures of Tomorrow is evocative and haunting. The BBC Singers give their usual polished performance."     ***

Shirley Ratcliffe    
 

Choir & Organ Magazine - December 2007

" ... you get a sense of the settings having grown organically out of their texts, so attuned is Chilcott to words and their import ... As for the singing, it is superb throughout, the BBC Singers, no doubt spurred on Chilcott’s conducting, giving themselves entirely over to both words and music without for a moment allowing any technical lapses ... The booklet notes and sound recording are both of the same excellence..."

Robert Levett 
 

International Record Review - October 2007

"...All the music on this CD is accessible, concise and says something worthwhile... The choir is renowned as an expert ensemble and here they sing splendidly under Chilcott’s direction... In the case of Beach, Chilcott employs a viola, superbly played by Paul Silverthorne. The viola’s nutty brown sound adds a marvellously wistful touch to this piece... The selection of music on this disc has been well made to give a good variety of perspectives on Bob Chilcott’s choral output... Chilcott is a resourceful composer and one who writes exceptionally well for voices and he is superbly served here by the virtuosity of the BBC Singers..."

John Quinn   
 

Music Web - September 2007

" ... the sheer vitality of this music exudes genuine joyfulness ... all the artistic and technical demands of this varied programme are deftly handled by the wonderfully versatile BBC Singers ... With Signum’s suitably spacious recorded sound, this is a glorious showcase of one of the finest choral composers at work in Britain today"
