This moving rendition of Pachelbel's Canon sets the 'Requiescat' from Oscar Wilde's 'Rosa Mystica' (1890). Chilcott displays his sensitivity as a vocal arranger, exploiting the richness of the SSSATB format and the lyricism of the optional guitar accompaniment. The result is a gratifying new take on a well-loved classic, sure to touch choirs and audiences alike.
