Product Description

Product Description

KING´S COLLEGE CHOIR CAMBRIDGE

Amazon.co.uk

Born in London in 1945, John Rutter is well known on both sides of the Atlantic for his choral compositions and as founder of the Cambridge Singers. He has regularly conducted at New York's Carnegie Hall; his "Magnificat" was written for performance there, while his "Gloria" was commissioned by a conductor in the Midwest. Tonal, accessible, and beautiful, Rutter's works have a distinctly personal style. Their somewhat archaic flavour is due, in part, to his frequently using fourths as building blocks and having the voices move in thirds (male and female alternating and ultimately converging), and also to his persistent displacement of prosodic accents away from the strong beats. The music literally speaks with the tongues of men and angels, and this seems entirely fitting: it radiates faith, hope, and a spontaneous love for the underlying words. The celestial voices are especially effective in Psalm 150, composed for the Queen's Golden Jubilee at St Paul's Cathedral. Set in English, it interpolates a few Latin lines between the verses, sung by three boy trebles stationed in the dome of King's College Chapel, where the recordings were made. (The Magnificat reverses the procedure, inserting a lovely English poem into the Latin text.) The performances are first-rate. There are many angelic harp solos; the woodwinds and brasses, especially the trumpets, are wonderful and make the "Gloria" truly glorious. The prominent solos for boy sopranos are impeccably in tune, except in the Psalm, sound a bit shrill and tight. --Edith Eisler

Format: Audio CD
Anyone who sings regularly in a choir will be familiar with the excellent choral composer John Rutter. I know he has his critics who say it's "samey" but in some ways that's the point - you know you'll enjoy singing his works. I have this on in the car and though I'm no longer a member of a choir I still belt it out (sounding much like the famous donkey being chainsawed) and it always lifts my spirits. No doubt anyone who overhears me singing will curl up with pain but it does me good and I'd recommend this particular recording as being particularly good for following the parts with the score. Rutter - Gloria; Magnificat

both of these CDs are excellent value for money and I would recommend them to friends which I have already done. It is so easy to click on line and with an Amazon account simply order and they arrive very promptly. Amazon is my first choice when seeking classical music,
