Description

for SATB and organ or orchestra This gentle yet uplifting carol was commissioned for the Choir of King's College, Cambridge, and was first performed during the 2012 Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. Rutter's gift for melody is in evidence throughout the work, with a sense of hushed awe leading to moments of glorious optimism. The text, written by the composer, is inspired by the fifteenth-century Corpus Christi Carol.show more

Review quote

Commissioned for the 2012 Nine Lessons and Carols service at King's College, Cambridge, John Rutter provides a lovely melody, beautifully arranged for choir and organ to his own text All bells in paradise. This carol is set to become a firm favourite, for although written for King's, good SATB choirs will relish singing it. * Gordon Appleton, Church Music Quarterly, December 2103 *show more
