WELCOME TO THIS EVENING’S CONCERT The National Youth Choir of Scotland was established in 1996 to provide opportunities for young people, teachers and choir directors to support and develop choral singing across Scotland. NYCoS activities now include four National Choirs, a growing network of Area Choirs across Scotland, Mini Music Makers classes and a broad range of educational projects. NYCoS also commissions and publishes a range of publications, songbooks and educational resources.

This Evening’s Concert Includes NYCoS Scotland NYCoS tours internationally every three years. The singers in the touring choir are offered a two-year membership and, in the tour year, a second group is formed named NYCoS Scotland - the group you will hear tonight. At the top of our pyramid of choirs in 2013 we have NYCoS Scotland, generally at the younger end of our 16-24 age range, and the 120 strong NYCoS Tour Choir, which gave a performance of Fauré Requiem with Robin Ticciati and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra last week in the Usher Hall. NYCoS Scotland is performing in both of our concerts in St Giles’ Cathedral this weekend. NYCoS NGC Training Choir NYCoS National Girls Choir was formed in 2007 to give girls aged 13-16 the opportunity to sing at national level. In 2010 a Training Choir was added to allow girls aged 12 upwards, who show vocal and musical potential, to benefit from the experience of working intensively with highly experienced vocal and choral instructors at a week long residential course. The choir has its own slot in the end of course concert but this is the first time it has undertaken an additional engagement later in the year. NYCoS Training Choir The young singers in this group were recruited by audition in the spring. NYCoS provides these young singers with an opportunity to advance their choral skills and develop their singing abilities with a view to progressing to membership of the flagship National Youth Choir itself.

Bob Chilcott (1955 - ) Bob Chilcott is one of the busiest and most popular choral composers and conductors in Britain today. He has been involved in choral music for most of his life. He was a boy chorister and then a tenor choral scholar in the choir of King’s College, Cambridge, and later sang with, composed and arranged for the celebrated King’s Singers. Since 1997 he has worked as a full-time composer. Today, Bob is in great demand internationally as composer, conductor and choral consultant. He has been invited to appear at many important international festivals, and has worked with some of the world’s leading choral ensembles. At home, he is currently Principal Guest Conductor of the BBC Singers. Bob Chilcott’s singing experience has given him an inside knowledge of an exceptionally wide range of music, and this is reflected in the eclectic nature of his own compositions which, whilst remaining within the mainstream English choral tradition, are variously inspired by folksongs, Gregorian chant, Anglican hymns, spirituals, jazz, close-harmony, gospel and African music. During his time with the King’s Singers, Chilcott had the good fortune to work with such jazz luminaries as George Shearing, Richard Rodney Bennett and John Dankworth. His wonderful setting of the Latin Missa Brevis, A Little Jazz Mass, was composed for the 2004 Crescent City Choral Festival, New Orleans. A relaxed, easy tempo Kyrie is followed by a Gloria with driving, upbeat outer sections enclosing a lyrical central section. The music of the Sanctus could be described as a ‘jazz lullaby’; the Benedictus ups the tempo a little, building to a strong forte for the ‘Hosanna’. Clearly inspired by the blues, the Agnus Dei reaches a powerful climax at ‘Dona nobis pacem’ before arriving at a peaceful conclusion. It says much for Chilcott’s skill that he has successfully brought together two very diverse traditions - the Latin mass and the jazz idiom - in such an expressive and entirely unforced way, an achievement that has generally eluded other composers who have tried something similar. © by John Bawden This adaptation for Soprano, Alto and Baritone voices by Stuart Hope is produced by permission of Oxford University Press.

Richard Rodney Bennett (1936 - 2012) One of the most versatile musicians of his generation, Richard Rodney Bennett was at the forefront of British composers for nearly half a century. His original compositions include numerous orchestral works, chamber, choral and piano works, ballets, songs, madrigals, jazz pieces and many award-winning film scores and music for television, from Far from the Madding Crowd, Billion Dollar Brain and Murder on the Orient Express to Four Weddings and a Funeral, Doctor Who and Titus Groan. Bennett was born on 29 March 1936 into a musical family in Broadstairs, on the Kent coast, and began composing as a child. His mother, who had been a student of Gustav Holst at St Paul’s Girls’ School, began teaching him piano from the age of five. In 1953 a scholarship took him to the Royal Academy of Music in London, where he studied with Lennox Berkeley and Howard Ferguson. He has been described as ‘the most spectacular rising star on the British musical scene in the Fifties’. Since he has a gift for memorable, quintessentially English melody and an instinctive lyric responsiveness to English poetry, Bennett has been able to produce a distinctive, highly attractive and varied and consistently imaginative body of choral work over a period of almost 50 years. Moreover his extensive knowledge of English lyric poetry enabled Bennett to choose a wide and often fascinating range of texts for appropriate setting. Renowned for his practicality and ability to adapt to any level or idiom, Bennett was able to produce many works for children and young performers. Though they encompass a wide range of texts and approaches, they are all marked by perfect adaptation of words to music, an attractive melodic appeal, wit, humour, pathos and notable economy of means. A Song at Evening, a setting of texts gathered by Walter de la Mare into a poem titled ‘Before Sleeping’, is a beautifully shaped occasional piece from 2009, written to mark the retirement of Christopher Berriman as Director of Music at Northbourne Park. © 2012 by Malcolm MacDonald


The Insect World - Bennett 1. The Insect World The insect world amid the suns and dew Awake and hum their tiny songs anew, And climb the tottergrass and blossoms stem As huge in size as mighty oaks to them; And rushy burnets on the pasture rise As tall as castles to their little eyes;

Clare

Each leaf’s a town and the smooth meadow grass A mighty world whose bounds they never pass; E’en spots no bigger than the husbandman’s Or Shepherd’s noontide dwarf-shrunk shadow spans Or e’en the milkmaid tripping thro’ the dew, Each space she covers with her slender shoe Seem to their view high woods in which they roam As lorn, lost wand’rers many miles from home Creeping up bents and down whole weary hours And resting oft on the soft breasts of flowers; Till age, in minutes long as years, creeps on, Or waning summer warns them to be gone. 2. The Fly Busy, curious thirsty fly Drink with me, and drink as I: Freely welcome to my cup, Could’st thou sip and sip it up: Make the most of life you may, Life is short and wears away.

Oldys

Ye living lamps, by whose dear light The nightingale does sit so late, And studying all the summer night, Her matchless songs does meditate;

Ye glow-worms, whose officious flame To wand’ring mowers shows the way, That in the night have lost their aim, And after foolish fires do stray; Your courteous lights in vain you waste, Since Juliana here is come, For she my mind hath so displaced That I shall never find my home. 4. Clock-a-Clay

Clare

In the cowslip pips I lie, Hidden from the buzzing fly, While green grass beneath me lies, Pearled with dew like fishes’ eyes Here I lie, a Clock-a-clay, Waiting for the time of day.

While grassy forest quakes surprise, And the wild wind sobs and sighs, My home rocks as like to fall, On its pillar green and tall, While the patt’ring rain drives by, Clock-a-clay keeps warm and dry. Day by day and night by night, All the week I hide from sight, In the cowslip pips I lie, In rain and dew still warm and dry, Day and night and night and day, Red, black-spotted Clock-a-clay.

Just alike, both mine and thine Hasten quick to their decline: Thine‘s a summer, mine‘s no more, Though repeated to three score. Three score summers when they’re gone, Will appear as short as one. 3. Glow-worms

Ye country comets, that portend No war nor princes funeral, Shining unto no higher end Than to presage the grass’s fall;

Marvell

My home shakes in wind and showers, Pale green pillar topped with flowers, Bending at the wild winds breath, Till I touch the grass beneath, Here I live, lone Clock-a-clay, Watching for the time of day.


Love’s Philosophy - L’Estrange 1. She Walks in Beauty

3. Love’s Philosophy

She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies, And all that’s best of dark and bright Meets in her aspect and her eyes; Thus mellow’d to that tender light Which Heav’n to gaudy day denies.

The fountains mingle with the river, And the rivers with the ocean, The winds of heaven mix for ever With a sweet emotion. Nothing in the world is single; All things, by a law divine, In one another’s being mingle— Why not I with thine?

Byron

One shade the more, one ray the less, Had half impair’d the nameless grace Which waves in ev’ry raven tress Or softly lightens o’er her face, Where thoughts serenely sweet express How pure, how dear their dwelling-place. And on that cheek and o’er that brow So soft, so calm, yet eloquent, The smiles that win, the tints that glow, But tell of days in goodness spent — A mind at peace with all below, A heart whose love is innocent. 2. Now Sleeps the Crimson Petal

Tennyson

Now sleeps the crimson petal, now the white; Nor waves the cypress in the palace walk; Nor winks the gold fin in the porph’ry font: The firefly wakens: waken thou with me. Now folds the lily all her sweetness up, And slips into the bosom of the lake: So fold thyself, my dearest, thou, and slip Into my bosom and be lost in me.

Shelley

See the mountains kiss high Heaven, And the waves clasp one another; No sister flow’r would be forgiv’n If it disdained its brother. And the sunlight clasps the earth, And the moonbeams kiss the sea. What are all these kissings worth, If thou kiss not me?


A Little Jazz Mass - Chilcott Kyrie Kyrie eleison. Christe eleison.

Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy.

Gloria Gloria in excelsis Deo. Et in terra pax hominibus bonĂŚ voluntatis.

Glory be to God in the highest. And in earth peace to men of good will.

Laudamus te; benedicimus te; adoramus te; glorificamus te. Gratias agimus tibi propter magnam gloriam tuam.

We praise Thee; we bless Thee; we worship Thee; we glorify Thee. We give thanks to Thee for Thy great glory.

Domine Deus, Rex coelestis, Deus Pater omnipotens. Domine Fili unigenite Jesu Christe. Domine Deus, Agnus Dei, Filius Patris.

O Lord God, Heavenly King, God the Father Almighty. O Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son. Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father.

Qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis. Qui tollis peccata mundi, suscipe deprecationem nostram. Qui sedes ad dextram Patris, miserere nobis.

Thou that takest away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us. Thou that takest away the sins of the world, receive our prayer. Thou that sittest at the right hand of the Father, have mercy upon us.

Quoniam tu solus Sanctus, tu solus Dominus, tu solus Altissimus, Jesu Christe. Cum Sancto Spiritu in gloria Dei Patris. Amen.

For thou only art holy, thou only art the Lord, thou only art the most high, Jesus Christ. Together with the Holy Ghost in the glory of God the Father. Amen.

Sanctus Sanctus, Dominus Deus Sabaoth. Pleni sunt coeli et terra gloria tua. Osanna in excelsis.

Holy, Lord God of Hosts. Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory. Hosanna in the highest.

Benedictus Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

Agnus Dei Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis. Agnus Dei. qui tollis peccata mundi, Dona nobis pacem.

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us. Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world, Grant us peace.
