The definitive collection of John Rutter carols and arrangements
This album gathers together most of the carols composed by John Rutter over the years, plus a sprinkling of Rutter arrangements of traditional carols, grouped to form a programme which narrates, reflects upon, and celebrates the Christmas story.
"Among the modern carols writers, John Rutter stands alone." Gramophone
