Bob Chilcott: The Bethlehem Star

Books | SATB

Composer: Bob Chilcott
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Bob Chilcott's The Bethlehem Star for SATB choir (with divisions) unaccompanied.

This affecting carol was composed in memory of Alan Greaves, the organist from Sheffield who was murdered on his way to Midnight Mass in 2012.

The text by Gerard Manley Hopkins is particularly suited to the Midnight Mass service, and Chilcott's setting is both peaceful and poignant, featuring changing metres and effective imitation in the Upper Voice parts.
