John Rutter, Britain’s most successful contemporary choral composer, has written most of his sacred music to commission and for use in church services. His music shows influences of the French and English choral traditions of the early 20th century, as well as influences from light music and American classic songwriting. Almost every choral anthem and hymn has an orchestral accompaniment in a more colorful form in addition to the standard organ or piano accompaniment. The Black Dyke Band celebrates Rutter’s 75th birthday with this compilation of his choral music in innovative arrangements for band by Luc Vertommen.
