About the Author

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully arranged carols. 1 Oct 2003
I would strongly recomend this edition to anyone who enjoys singing Christmas carols, but has difficulty in locating singers for the tenor and bass lines.
There are many traditional carols: Angels from the realms of glory, First Nowell, Gabriel's message, Ding-dong merrily, etc, which are beautifully arranged by John Rutter and David Willcocks to suit the voice ranges perfectly.
In addition to this there is a selection of delightful carols writen by John Rutter, including: Star Carol (which would suit a junior choir since it is arranged for 2 soprano lines) Nativity Carol and Shepherd's pipe carol.
The carols in this edition are usually well loved by singers and audiences alike. It is well worth the investment!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection 10 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Carols for Choirs 4 continues the long established tradition of Carols for Choirs 1 - 3. However, it is refreshing to have some alternative arrangements of the now familiar settings and also an ideal collection for smaller ensembles.
