There is so much to admire in Jools Scott’s music. It is totally accessible but it avoids saccharine sweetness, it is varied in style – reminiscent of Vaughan Williams and Britten at times – yet has a definite voice of its own. His instrumental writing is rich and full of colour, sometimes charming, sometimes menacing, whilst his choral writing is simply sublime, constantly making use of different textures and truly giving the choir something to sing about.
