All the greats!
For fans of Rutter's music, and even those that aren't, this is the perfect Christmas gift. From old classics like 'For the Beauty of the Earth' to new pieces like 'The Gift of Music' (sung beautifully by Allan Clayton), this album offers both joy and sadness. The arrangement of 'Deep River' made me shed more than one tear, as it somehow manages to reach 'deep' into the soul. There are so many great things that can be said about this album, and there isn't space enough to say them!
This is too sickly sweet for me. I like the Cambridge Singers when they are singing more traditional repotoire but a whole disc of Rutter is too much to take. If you like Songs of Praise you will love this, but if you prefer church music unsullied then look elswhere.
Never possessed an album full of Rutter nor of the Cambridge Singers, but I love this. I bought it for the track 'The Gift of Music' but I could sit and listen to Rutter all night long. A lovely collection.
