On Sunday, February 26, 2017, at the 10:30 service, our Music Festival will get in the spirit of Mardi Gras.
Bob Chilcott is one of the busiest and most popular choral composers and conductors in Britain today. His involvement in choral music began as a boy chorister at King’s College, Cambridge. Since 1997 he has worked as a full-time composer, including with such jazz luminaries as George Shearing, Richard Rodney Bennett and John Dankworth. His setting of the Latin Missa Brevis, A Little Jazz Mass, was composed for the 2004 Crescent City Choral Festival in New Orleans and successfully brings together the very diverse traditions of the Latin mass and the jazz idiom.
