Product Description

Review

''The sound of the choir is full and colourful throughout and the boys produce a very fine sound indeed matching their well-developed sound with mature musicianship.'' --The Organ

John Rutter has a knack of writing choral music that shows off voices to their best advantage. His festive settings of the Gloria, Magnificat and Te Deum were written over the period 1974-1990. These vivid performances show how thoroughly Rutter can absorb them and make music of exhilarating impact. **** --Daily Telgraph,14/04/11

I love the confident swagger and tonal punch of the St Albans trebles,with boys and girls united for this uplifting recording,and the whole commitment of the Hertfordshire cathedral's adult voices. **** --Classic fm Magazine,June'11

The bright,enthusiastically upbeat sentiments of Rutter's Gloria are specially well suited to youthful voices,and the boys and girls of the combined St Albans choirs disport themselves royally in this recording,pinning the tricksy syncopations of the concluding movement deftly,and relishing their high notes at the soaring conclusion. Performance **** Recording **** --BBC Music Magazine,June'11

Andrew Lucas's St Albans choristers are on sparkling form,with first-class support from organist Tom Winpenny and the Ensemble DeChorum who scrupulously adhere to everyone of the score's markings.More recordings from St Albans please. --Gramophone,Aug'11

5.0 out of 5 stars "Feel good" sacred music 10 Jun 2011
By Jim D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For over 30 years, John Rutter has been one of the most popular of English composers; though probably most famous for his Christmas carols--both original and arranged--he has also written longer works of sacred music, three of which are found here. (The Requiem and "Mass of the Children" have already been recorded by Naxos, with different artists.) As these are concert pieces, rather than liturgical, the composer has some fun with various musical styles (I love the Elgar-like "big tune" at the end of the Te Deum), infectious rhythms and colorful harmonies, and that fun comes across in the performances, too. Most other recordings are by a mixed chorus, so to hear the boys and girls voices on the top line adds a slightly different color. The sound is good, even if the tenors get buried under the instruments a few times. Notes by the composer, and texts.

3.0 out of 5 stars John Rutter--Gloria * Magnificat * Te Deum 4 Jun 2011
By musichathcharms - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Performed by choirs, soloist, organist, and conductor of St. Albans Cathedral, England

John Rutter has captured the admiration of many school and church choirs with his modern settings of religious texts. His compositions have improved the image of English music that is easily understood and performed by amateur choirs. These three works call for choir and soloists, instruments less than full orchestra, and traditional Latin texts, all within the skill level of school/choir singers and performers. The first two works were commissions from U.S. organizations, and the Te Deum a request from a British guild. Comments from performers and audiences alike invariably reflect the joyous exuberance woven into these songs of praise.

The setting of St. Alban's Cathedral just north of London and the beautiful and ancient history of this pre-Roman site provide a welcoming embrace for Mr. Rutter's accomplishments. It is as if he is returning home.

The very best about this recording is the skill of the performers. The St. Albans Abbey Girls Choir and the St. Albans Cathedral Choir of boys keep an energetic pace, Elizabeth Cragg's beautiful soprano soars above the choir, and the organ and instruments of the Ensemble DeChorum provide substance and texture. There is much unison singing, and there are numerous time changes throughout, but these do not distract the audience during the performance. The listener perceives airiness, lightness, ethereal shimmering, and joy. The pace and lightness of the voices reflect the intent of the composer for the expression of simplicity, participation, traditional texts, and joyous worship.
