for SATB and piano or orchestra This tender piece was composed in memory of the victims of Fukushima in 2011. It is both reflective and heartfelt, with a simple, appealing melody, rich harmonies, and a flowing accompaniment. It is a dual language publication, allowing for performance in both Japanese and English. There is a version for SSA. Orchestral material is available on hire.
for SATB double choir and organ The King shall rejoice was commissioned by the Dean and Chapter of Westminster to mark the sixtieth anniversary of Her Majesty The Queen's coronation. Setting powerful and optimistic words from Psalm 21, Chilcott establishes a celebratory mood from the outset, with dancing 6/8 rhythms and jubilant, ringing chords. The voices soon divide into two choirs, creating a striking antiphonal effect, and the music moves through sections of slower, more sustained writing in 4/4. The second half of the work sets an adapted version of the psalm text, famously used by William Byrd-'O Lord, make thy servant Elizabeth our Queen rejoice in thy strength'-before coming to a buoyant and triumphant close with the final 'amen'.
for SATB (with divisions) and piano or chamber orchestra Rutter's charming piece sets a secular text by the composer that emphasises the significance of music and harmony in an ephemeral world. A simple accompaniment figure in the piano provides the backdrop to alternating unison and polyphonic verses that manage to capture both nostalgia for what was and optimism for what is to come.
Iggy Pop hasn't simply left a mark on music; he's left blood stains all over it. From fronting the legendary proto-punk band The Stooges to collaborating with an eclectic mix of artists including David Bowie, Lou Reed, Debbie Harry, Jack White and Josh Homme, Iggy has proved himself to be one of punk's most iconic, outrageous and enduring music artists. In this beautifully illustrated collection, he shares his lyrics and reflections on a genre-defining music career that spans five decades.
for SATB unaccompanied and optional flute This warm and tender carol sets an evocative text by Norman Nicholson depicting Mary's gentle nurturing of her child. There is a beautiful simplicity in Chilcott's setting, which features sumptuous harmonies, lyrical melodies, and an optional part for flute that weaves in and out of the texture. The flute part is printed in the vocal score.
Die ou bekende en geliefde FAK-sangbundel het in 2012 ín welkome aanvulling gekry. Liedjies wat die afgelope 40 jaar in Afrikaanse musiek geblom het, kry plek in die nuwe Volume II. Hierdie nuwe sangbundel maak plek vir 400 liedjies wat geskryf en gesing is sedert die vorige uitgawe van 1979. Vanjaar, 2012, is ook die 75ste bestaansjaar van die FAK-sangbundel en juis daarom is besluit om die wonder van Afrikaanse musiek behoorlik te vier met die uitreiking van ín nuwe sangbundel. Die nuwe rubrieke sluit in: Immergroen & populer; Kleinkuns; Kinderliedjies; Geestelike liedjies; Tradisionele liedjies; Kunsmusiek en Koormusiek. Van die gewildste en bekendste werke deur Afrikaanse musieklegendes soos Rina Hugo, Ge Korsten, Chris Chameleon, Steve Hofmeyr, die Briels, Anton Goosen en Laurika Rauch is in die bundel vervat, met treffers soos Ballade vir ín enkeling,De la Rey, Engel, Houtkruis en Kinders van die wind. Kenners van Afrikaanse musiek, soos Mimi Coertze, Wessel van Wyk, Anneke Lamont en wyle Christa Steyn was betrokke by die keuse van die beste uit die nuwere Afrikaanse musiekskat. Die nuwe FAK-sangbundel vervang nie die ou bundel met sy bekende volksliedjies soos Aanstap Rooies, My hartjie, my liefie en Sarie Marais nie. Die nuwe bundel is eerder daarop gemik om die skatkis van Afrikaanse musiek wat bewaar moet word, uit te brei. Benewens die rubriekindeling het die bundel ook ín register volgens liedere se titels en eerste reels.
for SSAA and piano This serene, reflective anthem is a rich addition to the Choral Evensong repertoire. Chilcott artfully entwines an original setting of William Fuller's 'Evening Hymn', most famously set by Henry Purcell, and the plainsong melody for the Latin hymn 'Te lucis ante terminum', in J. M. Neale's English translation. Grounded in minor tonalities, the anthem makes use of a semi-chorus of altos and sopranos for the hymn tune, juxtaposed with compelling and complementary melodies in the other parts, building to a resolute final section before a peaceful 'Amen'.
for SATB (with divisions) and piano This arrangement of Gruber's timeless carol is warm and gentle. The first two verses are accompanied by gentle arpeggiated figures, leading to a third and final verse which is given profound depth through its largely unaccompanied scoring. The carol was recorded by the Cambridge Singers, directed by John Rutter, on the The John Rutter Christmas Album (Collegium Records CSCD510). Conductor's scores and instrumental parts are available from the publisher, as is Rutter's alternative unaccompanied arrangement.

Building on the success of his Junior Voiceworks 1 and 2, Kevin Stannard has collected 40 inspirational pieces for the Christmas season, ranging from rounds to raps, and from folk pieces to well-known carols in sparkling new arrangements. With excellent practical advice and rehearsal notes, and an accompanying CD, this volume meets the needs of all schools and choral groups for this special time of year.
for SAATB unaccompanied A piece made famous by the award-winning a cappella group Vocado, Coffee Time is an upbeat dedication to the down time we all crave, for sharing thoughts, silence, and that aroma! Founded on classic a cappella style and sense of fun, the piece boasts an infectious melody and bossa nova rhythm, with sumptuous key changes, scat rhythms, and contrasting sections. The piece is perfect for vocal groups or small- to medium-size choirs, and has the makings of a great encore or competition piece.
for SATB and organ/chamber orchestra This joyous yet reflective Christmas carol will appeal to both choir and audience. It is characterized by a soaring melody, an artful use of texture, and a gentle expressiveness, heightened by modal inflections and the organ accompaniment. The text, written by the composer, is inspired by an inscription in Durham Cathedral by the Venerable Bede: 'Christus est stella matutina'.
for SATB and piano This celebration of friendship is rich in expressive melodies and poignant harmonies, underpinned by sensitive piano writing. The text, by Delphine Chalmers, is inspired by French Renaissance essayist Michel de Montaigne's writings on friendship, from which the well known quotation 'If I am pressed to say why I loved him, I feel it can only be explained by replying: 'Because it was he; because it was me.'' originates. Eminently accessible, this piece is perfect for concert programmes celebrating friendship and community.
for SATB double choir unaccompanied This optimistic and affirmatory anthem sets a useful service text of general thanksgiving from the Book of Common Prayer. Chilcott makes full use of the imitation and antiphonal effects that these forces enable, while keeping the vocal lines and part-writing well within the capabilities of most church choirs.
for SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied This reflective carol (setting a text by the composer) features an affecting recurring melody, sumptuous harmonies, and long, expressive phrases. Though it has moments of great intensity, the carol is primarily quietly optimistic in mood, with the homophonic texture and changing metre highlighting the heartfelt devotion of the text.
for SATB (with divisions) and harp or piano This is a simple and gentle setting of the popular American folk hymn. Beginning softly with the sopranos accompanied by piano/harp in the first verse, Rutter explores a wide variety of textures, building to a powerful final verse before ebbing away in a poignantly quiet close.
for solo voice, SATB (with divisions), flute, and piano John Rutter's timeless arrangement of Skylark, a standard of the golden age of American song, is rich, mellow, and mellifluous. Soaring lines for flute depict the eponymous songbird, and the classic Hoagy Carmichael tune is shared between solo voice and choir, the latter also often providing a cushion of evocative harmonies.
for SATB and organ or piano This simple and attractive carol sets a little-known text by the Rev. Canon John Gray (1866-1934). With an accompaniment for either organ and piano and optional soprano solos, this piece is accessible to a wide range of choirs and would be an excellent addition to either a Christmas concert or service.
for SATB and piano Written in memory of John Scott, the celebrated organist and choirmaster, who died in 2015, The Real of Heart is a beautifully tender and reflective piece. The anonymous text reminds us to remember things in their best form, 'untarnished and supreme', and Chilcott's music is the perfect match. Arc-shaped melodies and a variety of choral textures are complemented by gently flowing arpeggio figures in the piano, with a central triplet section providing contrast.
