Bob Chilcott’s career began as a singer, and he became one of The King’s Singers. With such practical experience, his vocal writing is particularly fine, his many vocal compositions being welcomed by performers and audiences alike. The Shepherd’s Carol is an excellent example of his work; a simple tune, initially unaccompanied, it is woven into a rich vocal tapestry.
