Bob Chilcott’s upbringing was conditioned by the combination of Cambridge, Christmas and choral singing. He was a boy chorister at King’s College in the 1960s and remained there as choral scholar. His substantial catalogue of yuletide music includes The shepherd’s carol, commissioned by King’s for its service of Nine Lessons and Carols, and a delightful arrangement of Still, still, still. The latter’s folksong-infused melody was written in the 1780s by Johann Friedrich Reichardt. Chilcott wraps it in extended harmonies and suspensions to create an atmosphere of shimmering, reverent tranquillity.
