Bob Chilcott: Three Choirs Service (Magnificat And Nunc Dimittis)

Books | Choral, SATB

Composer: Bob Chilcott
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Bob Chilcott's Three Choirs Service (Magnificat And Nunc Dimittis) for SATB and Organ.

Commissioned by the 2015 Three Choirs Festival, this is Chilcott's second setting of the Evening Canticles. Bright and rhythmical, the Magnificat features syncopated chords in the Organ part that punctuate the more sustained choral textures. In contrast, the Nunc dimittis is reflective, opening with a soaring soprano melody and building towards an expressive climax on the word 'glory'. Ideal for church and cathedral choirs looking for something new for their evening service.
