The Falcon was <strong>Rutter</strong>’s first large-scale choral work,<br />

premiered in the chapel of King’s College, Cambridge,<br />

conducted by Sir David Willcocks. The kernel of the work<br />

is the medieval poem that gives it its title, a poem rich<br />

with symbols of the Eucharist, the Grail legend and the<br />

Glastonbury thorn. Gregorian chant is used, sung by a<br />

boy’s choir.<br />

The Gift of Life is a six-movement choral celebration of the<br />

earth and its creation. Setting a variety of sacred texts,<br />

including new words by the composer, the work includes<br />

the mystical ‘Hymn to the Creator of Light’, for double choir,<br />

as its central canticle. The surrounding movements offer<br />

a kaleidoscope of moods, from the spirited ‘O all ye works<br />

of the Lord’ to the majestic ‘O Lord, how manifold are thy<br />

works’ and culminating in the inspirational ‘Believe in life’.<br />

O all ye works of the Lord • The tree of life • Hymn to the<br />

Creator of Light • O Lord, how manifold are thy works • The<br />

<strong>John</strong> <strong>Rutter</strong>’s Gloria was written in 1974 in response to a<br />

commission from The Voices of Mel Olson, a choir based<br />

in the USA. The division of the work into three movements<br />

– respectively proclamatory, prayerful, and joyfully<br />

affirmative – corresponds to the divisions in the text. Most<br />

of the melodic material derives from a Gregorian chant<br />

associated with this text.<br />

<strong>John</strong> <strong>Rutter</strong>’s Magnificat is a joyous celebration of the Virgin<br />

Mary, inspired by feast-day festivities in countries such as<br />

Spain, Mexico, and Puerto Rico. Following the example set<br />

by Bach, the Magnificat text is extended, incorporating<br />

the fifteenth-century English poem ‘Of a Rose’, the prayers<br />

‘Sancta Maria’, and the ‘Sanctus’ (set to the Gregorian chant<br />

of the Missa cum jubilo).<br />

Magnificat anima mea • Of a Rose, a lovely Rose • Quia fecit<br />

The text is that of a standard Latin Missa brevis, to which<br />

several relevant English poetic texts have been added. The<br />

first and last of these are taken from Bishop Thomas Ken’s<br />

renowned morning and evening hymns for the scholars<br />

of Winchester College. They give the whole work the<br />

framework of a complete day, from waking to sleeping,<br />

within which other texts and moods appear like events in<br />

that day or landmarks in a life.<br />

the Lord, O my soul • The Lord is my shepherd • Cantate<br />

Domino • The Lord is my light and my salvation • O clap<br />

This edition presents Fauré’s masterpiece in a form which<br />

accords with his original intention that it should be a<br />

liturgical Requiem with accompaniment of organ and<br />

chamber ensemble. The 1893 version is an expansion of<br />

Fauré’s original. In contrast to the fully orchestrated version<br />

that was published in 1900, this edition preserves the<br />

original chamber instrumentation, and it also contains a<br />

full English translation by <strong>John</strong> <strong>Rutter</strong>.<br />

This is one of the best-loved and most widely performed<br />

choral works of the twentieth century. The texts (in Latin<br />

and English) are from the Missa pro Defunctis, the Book of<br />

Common Prayer, and the Psalms. The seven sections form<br />

an archlike meditation on the themes of life and death:<br />

prayers on behalf of all humanity, psalms, personal prayers<br />

to Christ, and in the central Sanctus an affirmation of divine<br />

glory. The full scores have been edited and engraved by<br />

the composer himself and are presented in handsome,<br />

clothbound editions.<br />

Visions is a four-movement showpiece for solo violin in<br />

unique combination with upper voice choir, harp, and<br />

strings (or organ). Inspired by the idea of ‘Jerusalem’ both<br />

as a Holy City and a utopian ideal of heavenly peace and<br />

seraphic bliss, the composer has selected four biblical<br />

texts, in English and Latin, that express different aspects of<br />

this vision. The profound subject matter is taken up in the<br />

celestial soundworld of the choir and the virtuosic, vibrant,<br />

and expressive writing for violin, all set against a backdrop<br />

of rich textures and harmonies in the strings and harp.<br />

Processional and prelude: Jerusalem the blessed • Arise,<br />

shine • Lament for Jerusalem • Finale: The holy city<br />

Setting this classic American patriotic song, <strong>Rutter</strong> makes<br />

prominent use of trumpets and percussion to create a<br />

rousing arrangement. The setting is equally effective when<br />

accompanied by the two keyboard parts of the reduced<br />

Originally published as the fifth movement in the largescale<br />

work The Gift of Life, this is a pleasingly optimistic<br />

anthem in <strong>Rutter</strong>’s gloriously uplifting style. The words<br />

by the composer capture a thankfulness for the world’s<br />

creation, along with a sense of excitement and anticipation<br />

for the future to come. <strong>Rutter</strong> skilfully mirrors the varying<br />

moods of the text through harmonic shifts, melodic<br />

devices, and tempo fluctuations, and brings the music to a<br />

wonderfully calm and peaceful close.<br />

This tender arrangement of the well-loved Irish folk melody<br />

‘Londonderry Air’ sets an uplifting poem by Howard Walter:<br />

a stirring combination of music and text that was also used<br />

at the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales in 1997. Opening<br />

with the melody sung by tutti sopranos, the texture<br />

gradually builds to a climatic double choir section as the<br />

text celebrates the journey to God’s heavenly kingdom.<br />

a mixture of unison and four-part choral textures, into<br />

The text combines the nineteenth-century poet and<br />

Christian minister George MacDonald’s emotive poem Lost<br />

and Found with the ‘In paradisum’ antiphon from the Burial<br />

Service in the Liber Usualis. The music is at times ethereal,<br />

melancholic, poignant, and life affirming. The solo oboe<br />

and organ writing is integral to the emotive character<br />

of the piece, and the word painting and angelic chorus<br />

encourage the listener to reflect on the subject at hand.<br />

A fable with music for narrator, mixed choir, and small<br />

orchestra; or oboe, bassoon, and piano<br />

This delightful work tells the story of the fourteenth<br />

century Dominican mystic Heinrich Suso who, according<br />

to legend, notated the carol In dulci jubilo after it had been<br />

sung to him by a band of angels; he is unexpectedly aided<br />

by Sigismund, his donkey.<br />

The work has been recorded by the Cambridge Singers<br />

and the City of London Sinfonia with Brian Kay (narrator),<br />

conducted by the composer. It forms part of a recording of<br />

the Christmas music of <strong>John</strong> <strong>Rutter</strong> (Collegium CSCD 513).<br />

This gentle yet uplifting carol was commissioned for<br />

the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge, and was first<br />

performed during the 2012 Festival of Nine Lessons and<br />

Carols. <strong>Rutter</strong>’s gift for melody is in evidence throughout<br />

the work, with a sense of hushed awe leading to moments<br />

of glorious optimism. The text, written by the composer, is<br />

inspired by the fifteenth-century Corpus Christi Carol.<br />

This joyous yet reflective Christmas carol will appeal<br />

to both choir and audience. It is characterized by a<br />

soaring melody, an artful use of texture, and a gentle<br />

expressiveness, heightened by modal inflections and the<br />

organ accompaniment. The text, written by the composer,<br />

is inspired by an inscription in Durham Cathedral by the<br />

Venerable Bede: ‘Christus est stella matutina’.<br />

Conductor’s score and parts on hire 9780193586901<br />

Reduction for flute and piano 9780193586918<br />

The instrumentation is the same as Bach’s Brandenburg<br />

Concerto No.5. The Suite is made up of six movements<br />

ranging from a ‘Bach-like Aria’ to a ‘Richard Rodgers-style<br />

Waltz’. <strong>Rutter</strong>’s own style comes forth most strongly in the<br />

final Rondeau with its characteristically forward-driving<br />

rhythms and beautiful melodic lines. Evoking an ‘antique’<br />

spirit, each movement is based on a Baroque or Classical<br />

style.<br />

Orchestral score and parts 9780193526389<br />

Originally scored in D major for counter-tenor, with<br />

trumpet and strings, the work is here arranged by <strong>John</strong><br />

<strong>Rutter</strong> for performance by soprano and organ (or strings<br />

and organ continuo), with or without solo trumpet, in the<br />

slightly lower key of C major. The D flat version of the parts<br />

is to enable performance with modern strings but natural<br />

trumpet, the trumpet playing in Handel’s original key of D<br />

major but at baroque pitch (A = 415).<br />

Suite Lyrique is a work in six movements for harp and<br />

strings, with music taken from the composer’s Suite<br />

Antique of 1979 for flute, harpsichord, and strings. The six<br />

movements explore different moods and exploit the harp’s<br />

sound world and capabilities to the full to create a highly<br />

attractive and joyful concert work.<br />
