for SSA, piano, and optional guitar, bass, and drum kit Samba Mass is a joyous and colourful setting of the Latin Missa brevis. The work is framed by the gentle bossa nova style of the warm Kyrie and relaxed Agnus Dei, which is prefaced by a funky Benedictus. The compelling rhythms of samba come to the fore in the second movement, a vivacious Gloria, which is followed by a beautiful Sanctus that offsets a steady flow of quavers with rhythmic syncopations. The stylistic piano part can be played as written or serve as a guide, and an optional guitar, bass, and drum kit part is available separately for band accompaniment. Performers will enjoy exploring the interplay between voices and the rich, warm colours of the samba and bossa nova styles.
for SATB and soloists (M-S, T, & B), with organ and flute or small ensemble With this majestic work Chilcott takes on a landmark of the choral repertory, the Christmas Oratorio. Words from St Luke and St Matthew are intertwined with 16th-19th-century poetry to create a compelling retelling of the Christmas story. Five hymn texts are set to new, original melodies that take their place among the season's tradition of great hymnody and enable the audience or congregation to join in with the choir. As in the St John Passion, much of the narrative is presented by a tenor soloist in the role of Evangelist, with focal points such as the Magnificat and Nunc dimittis and Rossetti's 'Love came down at Christmas' taken by mezzo-soprano and bass soloists. The chorus is integral to the storytelling, assuming small character roles and taking centre stage in two unaccompanied movements. A solo flute characterizes the angels, and the mellow tones of the brass ensemble evoke a sense of festive tradition.
for SSA, piano, and optional bass and drumkit ad lib. A highly original and effective concert setting of the Latin Missa brevis in which the various movements embrace a variety of jazz styles. The characterful piano accompaniment can be played as written or serve as a guide, and bass and drums can join in ad lib. The bass part is available on sale (ISBN 978-0-19-335655-9). Also available in an SATB version.
An exciting collection of twenty new spiritual arrangements for SATB choirs, specially commissioned for this volume, compiled and edited by Bob Chilcott. Taking a fresh look at these timeless songs, including both familiar favorites and less well-known gems, the ten arrangers bring to these pieces the fruits of their diverse musical backgrounds and experiences. The arrangements feature a wide range of styles, from introspective to ecstatic, with a mixture of large- and small-scale pieces, both unaccompanied and accompanied. Spirituals for Choirs provides singers with an inspirational, moving, and above all, enjoyable repertoire.
Set for soprano solo, SATB choir, and piano (or organ) or orchestra, this setting is built upon a haunting melody of folk-like simplicity, underpinned throughout by a lyrical and independent accompaniment.
Suitable for SS with piano, or piano and string orchestra, this book contains a simple setting describing the wonder of a world seen through the eyes of a deaf child. In the chorus singers are encouraged to sign the words they are singing.
for SATB, piano, and optional bass and drum kit ad lib. A highly original and effective concert setting of the Latin Missa brevis in which the various movements embrace a variety of jazz styles.

Also available in an SSA version.
for SATB, accompanied and unaccompanied To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the publication of Carols for Choirs 1, OUP presents a new volume in this ground-breaking series. Carols for Choirs 5 continues the tradition of its predecessors by providing a complete resource for choirs from Advent through to Epiphany. Featuring brand new carols and arrangements of classic tunes, the collection showcases the very best established and new names in choral composition today, both in the UK and world-wide.
for SA (with divisions) and piano In this energetic and dramatic piece Chilcott sets both the original unpublished and familiar published version of 'The Mouse's Tale' from Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. With jazz influences, an abundance of character, and a strong sense of fun, Mouse Tales will be an unforgettable addition to any concert.
for SATB and organ or string orchestra This peaceful arrangement of James R. Murray's melody explores a different choral texture in each of its verses, from optional solo to SATB a cappella. The final verse includes a gentle descant, which soars serenely above the other voices. An accompaniment for string orchestra is available on hire/rental. This work first appeared in Carols for Choirs 5.
for SATB and piano Happy the man's gentle pace, tender harmonies, and flowing piano accompaniment perfectly capture the reflective and uplifting message of John Dryden's text: 'Happy the man...He who, secure within, can say; Tomorrow do thy worst, for I have lived today'. Featuring stirring climaxes, expressive vocal lines, and a fluid piano part, this piece will give rise to a moving performance. Happy the man is featured on the Wroclaw Philharmonic Choir's CD of Bob Chilcott's music.
for upper voices, SATB, and piano (with snare and tenor drums and solo cello) or chamber orchestra This profound setting of poems by Wilfred Owen explores the idea of the sun as a redemptive force. The sense of human connection and vivid imagery of the natural world imbued in Owen's poetry is perfectly conveyed in Chilcott's music, which is rich in highly effective word painting and melodies as visceral as the poetry itself. The first movement, 'Song of Songs', sets the tone for the work, balancing a sense of reverence and solemnity with hopefulness and optimism, and a poignant and moving setting of Futility is a powerful focal point. Chilcott supplements the choral texture to great effect, with snare and tenor drum creating a mood of expectancy in 'Spring Offensive' and a middle movement for tenor and cello soloists that inhabits a stark musical landscape that blossoms harmonically as the soldier tells of the 'fellowships' and 'beauty' they have found.
