About John Rutter

John Rutter was born in London in 1945 and studied music at Clare College, Cambridge. His compositions embrace choral, orchestral, and instrumental music, and he has edited or co-edited various choral anthologies including four Carols for Choirs volumes with Sir David Willcocks and the Oxford Choral Classics series. From 1975 to 1979 he was Director of Music at Clare College, and in 1981 he formed his own choir, the Cambridge Singers. He now divides his time between composition and conducting and is sought after as a guest conductor for the world's leading choirs and orchestras.show more

Review quote

The Shepherd's Pipe Carol remains fresh and conceptually original, and I am talking here about the whole package: effervescent music; touching text; and irrepressible Christmas spirit. If there were to be a 'Desert Island Carols' programme - and that would be quite hard to stomach, even for a carol-lover like myself - then Rutter's SPC would surely be one of the eight. * Jeremy Summerly, Choir & Organ September 2015 *show more
