I'm a newcomer to John Rutter's music. So far I love everything I've heard that he's written. I love the "Pie Jesu" from his Requiem, and I'm taken with the beautiful simplicity of his Christmas carols, especially "The Angels' Carol" and "Mary's Lullaby." As a Christmas carol writer myself, I know how deceptively difficult it is to write simple lyrics that mean anything. (Try writing an additional verse to "Silent Night" and you'll see what I mean.) Rutter fuses words and melody to make a perfect whole. And the man writes gorgeous, memorable melodies; I can't listen to "The Angels' Carol" or "What Sweeter Music" and NOT be humming them to myself all day.
If you're wondering whether you ought to buy this CD, please don't hesitate. You'll be happy to have purchased it..
John Rutter is my favorite composer. This CD is absolutely beautiful!
Beautiful recording of some John Rutter favorites. Always loved singing Rutter's pieces in choir, but never actually got a recording until now. Why did I wait so long? Ethereal and stunning!
