Sir David Willcocks

Sir David began his musical training as a chorister at Westminster Abbey, later winning scholarships to Clifton College and King’s College, Cambridge.

After a five-year period of war service he was elected Fellow of King’s College, Cambridge, and appointed conductor of the Cambridge Philharmonic Society. Subsequently he became Organist of Salisbury Cathedral, and later of Worcester Cathedral, conducting at the Three Choirs Festival from 1950 to 1957.
Associate Member, American Bandmasters Association​
From 1957 to 1974 he was Director of Music at King’s College, Cambridge, University Lecturer in Music, and Conductor of the Cambridge University Musical Society. He was Director of the Royal College of Music from 1975 to 1984 and Musical Director of The Bach Choir for 38 years (a post he relinquished in 1998).

Under his direction The Bach Choir and King’s College Choir made many recordings with leading orchestras of great choral and orchestral works. Sir David was knighted in the Queen’s Silver Jubilee Honours of 1977 and has been awarded honorary degrees in the USA and Canada as well as at the Universities of Bradford, Bristol, Exeter, Leicester and Sussex in England.

Sir David maintains a busy schedule of concerts and recordings, including recent visits to the USA, Canada, South Africa and many European countries.

(Whence is that goodly fragrance flowing?)
Sir David Willcocks; arranged by Paul Noble

The original setting of this beautiful melody was for Strings and Chorus.  This Concert/Wind Band version features the brass ensemble, the woodwind choir, as well as the full band.  It is intended for combined Band and Chorus, but may be performed by Band alone.  Its is completely compatible with the published choral edition, except that it is written one-half step lower (E-flat instead of E major).  There are no accidentals, and, apart from the instructions for andante and legato, the phrasing is left to the conductor.  The simplicity and rich harmonic structure make this an important addition to the repertoire of young bands, and a perfect piece for any band to program for the Christmas season.
