The weather, the most quintessentially English of topics, was the inspiration for this work. Chilcott weaves together a tapestry of well-known weather rhymes, such as 'The rain it raineth every day upon the just and the unjust fella', and 'Whether the weather', in a work that is energetic, quirky, and entertaining. His choral writing is inventive and full of character, using layered rhythms and jazzy harmonies. This will be a fun piece to perform, and perfect as a light addition to any concert programme.
