Bob_Chilcott,_January_2009Bob Chilcott rose to fame singing Tenor with the King’s Singers (back when their output was largely on vinyl).  These days he is better known as a composer and arranger.  We had a test drive of the Little Jazz Mass at the singing day in May, and we’re very happy to be working it up for performance to a wider audience.
