Setting a newly written text by Charles Bennett, this fifteen-minute choral work takes singers on a journey through five historical events: the invention of printing, the abolition of slavery, the first powered flight, the discovery of penicillin, and the first man in space.

In each movement, music and words come together to create a strikingly vivid and personal account of each protagonist's experience, from the printer seeing 'each letter like a person' to the astronaut commenting on the beauty of our planet from space.

Chilcott's music is as captivating as ever, with energy in abundance alongside moments of clarity and stillness. This is an ideal concert work for choirs looking to perform with an upper-voice group, or for larger SATB choruses with divisi sopranos and altos.

The optional timpani part is printed separately at the back of the score.

Wales GB Nothing thankyou!
An interesting concept which the composer uses imaginatively. Good copy, well presented.
Some of the score compresses the parts to save space. Not entirely convinced by the chosen texts, though the subjects are certainly apt.
