Bob Chilcott: Evening Hymn

Books | SSAA, Piano Accompaniment, Choral

Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Bob Chilcott's Evening Hymn for SSAA and Piano.

This serene, reflective anthem is a rich addition to the Choral Evensong repertoire. Chilcott artfully entwines an original setting of William Fuller's 'Evening Hymn', most famously set by Henry Purcell, and the plainsong melody for the Latin hymn 'Te lucis ante terminum', in J. M. Neale's English translation. Grounded in minor tonalities, the anthem makes use of a semi-chorus of altos and sopranos for the hymn tune, juxtaposed with compelling and complementary melodies in the other parts, building to a resolute final section before a peaceful 'Amen'.
