Bob Chilcott, described by The Observer as “a contemporary hero of British Choral Music,” has become one of the most widely performed composers of choral music in the world. His You are my God is indicative of his style: melodic and singable, yet with a new and fresh twist.

Communion Motet Locus iste Anton Bruckner (1824-1896)
Words: Latin gradual for the dedication of a church
Locus iste a Deo factus est, inaestimabile sacramentum, irreprehensibilis est.
This place was made by God, a priceless sacrament; it is without reproach.
Although mostly known for his nine symphonies, Anton Bruckner’s compositional output includes sacred masterworks as well. Bruckner assiduously studied the music of Renaissance Italian polyphonic masters such as Palestrina and German Baroque composers, especially Bach. Locus iste was written in 1869, to celebrate the dedication of the votive chapel of the cathedral at Linz, where Bruckner had been the cathedral organist. (Notes courtesy Ryan Turner)
