Bob Chilcott: Thy Arising

Books | SATB, Organ Accompaniment

Composer: Bob Chilcott
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

This Easter anthem by Bob Chilcott sets the second part of George Herbert's poem 'Easter', famously set in full by Ralph Vaughan Williams in his Five Mystical Songs.

The opening section has an almost pastoral feel, with the sopranos and altos presenting a lilting melody in thirds, underpinned by a flowing organ accompaniment. The anthem becomes progressively more expansive and reflective, with rich textures and harmonies, before drawing to a profound close.
