THE REAL OF HEART
By Bob Chilcott
for SATB and piano
Written in memory of John Scott, the celebrated organist and choirmaster, who died in 2015, The Real of Heart is a beautifully tender and reflective piece. The anonymous text reminds us to remember things in their best form, 'untarnished and supreme', and Chilcott's music is the perfect match. Arc-shaped melodies and a variety of choral textures are complemented by gently flowing arpeggio figures in the piano, with a central triplet section providing contrast.
