Bob Chilcott: The Angry Planet

Books | Choral, SATB, SSA

Composer: Bob Chilcott
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

This monumental cantata for massed forces was commissioned by David Hill and The Bach Choir and premiered as part of the 2012 BBC Proms. Setting a specially commissioned text by Charles Bennett, Chilcott skilfully uses both metred and unmetered sung and spoken lines to highlight the text's environmental message.

While the musically interlinked choirs sing of humanity's negligence towards nature in a series of dream images, the endearing and innocent tunes of the children's Choir ultimately evoke a sense of hope for the future. Creating a unique opportunity for adult and children's Choirs to collaborate, this captivating piece offers a fun and educational performance experience for singers both young and old.
