Hail, star of the sea most radiant, written for Salisbury Cathedral Choir, brings to the fore another of Chilcott’s talents: a knowledge of the voice that results in an immensely joyous, natural and, above all, intensely singable outpouring of celebration that is both infectious and memorable.

The melodic invention of Rutter and serenity of Fauré mingle in an original Requiem by one of Britain’s most popular and prolific choral composers, gloriously sung by the acclaimed Wells Cathedral Choir.» More
Hail, star of the sea most radiant,
O mother of God most glorious,
A pure virgin always persevering.
O gate of heaven most gorgeous,
Thou was saluted with great humility
When Gabriel said, Ave Maria,
Establish us in peace and tranquility,
And change the name of sinful Eve.
Loose the prisoners from captivity.
Unto the blind give sight again.
Deliver us from our malignity
To the end we may some grace attain.
