John Rutter

John Rutter CBE, 65, had his first composition, the Shepherd?s Pipe Carol, published when he was still a student in 1967. He has composed hundreds of pieces, predominantly carols, anthems and lengthier choral works, including a Requiem and a Gloria. He divides his time between composing and conducting, and lives near Cambridge with his wife, JoAnne, and their son, Nick, 22.

Esta Noche

“This folk-carol is known throughout the Spanish-speaking world for its melody and dance-like spirit. John Rutter's arrangement captures this perfectly, pairing soloist and chorus, with exuberance and fun. This arrangement adheres to the original orchestration by John Rutter, for Solo Soprano and chorus, but also offers the option of a delightful showcase for Solo Trumpet and band.”
