No living composer is more closely associated with the Christmas season than John Rutter, whose piece Shepherd's Pipe Carol, first placed him on the map of Yule some 35 or so Christmases ago. Rutter is the primary artistic force behind Collegium Records, which in 2002 made a trip to the vaults and culled together The John Rutter Christmas Album. It is the eighth collection of Christmas music with Rutter issued by Collegium, and before you cry "Noël oversaturation!" it is good to know three things about it. Firstly, it is mostly compiled from the Collegium Christmas Day in the Morning and Christmas with the Cambridge Singers, both titles that are no longer available on CD. Secondly, The John Rutter Christmas Album consists entirely of Rutter's own Yuletide-centric original compositions and arrangements. Finally, there are two brand new recordings on this CD.

Stand out tracks here are Wexford Carol, Nativity Carol, What Sweeter Music, and the newly recorded selections Dormi Jesu and Love Came Down at Christmas. One is a little surprised that Collegium did not take advantage of the occasion to re-record some selections that didn't turn out quite so well the first time, particularly Jesus Child and I Saw Three Ships, both of which suffer from ragged coordination, or the lack of it, between choir and orchestra. The John Rutter Christmas Album could be better sequenced than it is; heard beginning to end, it bogs down somewhat at about the beginning of the last third. Nevertheless, Rutter's contribution to Christmas music is unique, and this is a nice survey of it, with only one other collection of its kind available, namely Polyphony's John Rutter: Music for Christmas on Hyperion. So get out the Yule log, the Wassail bowl, and do consider inviting Rutter to your Christmas feast. The dish he brings with The John Rutter Christmas Album is a tasty one indeed. ---Uncle Dave Lewis, AllMusic Review

Acclaimed British composer John Rutter’s Gloria was a milestone in his career and remains an evergreen favourite with choirs worldwide for its freshness, drama and sheer beauty. His joyous setting of the Magnificat was conceived, in the composer’s words, as ‘a bright Latin-flavoured fiesta’ and is performed here in its version for choir, organ and chamber orchestra. This delightful choral album concludes with Rutter’s setting of the Te Deum, one of the church’s most ebullient hymns of praise to the Almighty. ---naxos.com

 

John Rutter's Gloria is probably his most frequently recorded, large-scale piece. Written in 1974, it was his first major international commission and it remains one of his most popular works. He was given explicit instructions to make it accessible, "so that a non-specialist audience could enjoy the music on first hearing," and that approach has characterized the bulk of his output, resulting in a divided assessment of his work: popularity with many audiences, but dismissiveness from critics and many professional musicians. The 40-minute Magnificat (1990) and Te Deum (1988) inhabit much the same aesthetic sphere as the Gloria: lyrical, perkily melodious, and, depending on one's perspective, either skillfully or slickly constructed. This music is already well enough represented on disc that this album from Naxos featuring the choirs of St. Albans Cathedral and Ensemble DeChorum, led by Andrew Lucas, does not make an especially compelling entry to the field. The problem is the choral sound; the boys and girls of the choirs, constituting the soprano section, sometimes have a blanched, almost bleached sound that's especially unappealing when the section is singing by itself. The tenor section, too, is uneven, sometimes sounding thin and pinched. Soprano soloist Elizabeth Cragg is adequate, but her sound is somewhat small. The recorded sound tends to be distant and is not especially lively. --- Stephen Eddins, Rovi

This new album couples John Rutter's most recent work with one of his most popular. Visions celebrates the utopian ideal of heavenly peace in in four movements written specially for the solo violin of Kerson Leong, string ensemble and the boy choristers of the Temple Church choir. The Requiem of 1985 receives a vital new recording under the guidance of its composer. ---hyperion-records.co.uk

 

John Rutter's Requiem Mass of 1985 was not the first composition to show his mature style, but it served notice of his place in the rising neo-Romantic movement of the time with its unashamedly melodic idiom, drawn on that of Gabriel Fauré's Requiem (and performed with that work in its American premiere) and boiling it down to simple structures. Whether you like Rutter or not, you will concede that here he has not let the Devil have all the good tunes. The work has been one of Rutter's most successful and has been recorded several times, but this release by Rutter's own Cambridge Singers and Aurora Orchestra marks the first under his baton since his 1985 recording. One of his stated reasons for recording the work again was to take advantage of the evolution of digital technology since those infant days, and here the recording succeeds solidly, with absolute textual clarity in the acoustically ideal All Hallows Church, Gospel Oak, in London. That also serves Rutter well in a second goal: that of introducing a new work as a balance to the early one. Visions (2016) was written for its violin soloist, Kerson Leong; it is for violin, chorus, and orchestra, and is based on biblical texts that each describe a different vision. This plays to Rutter's strengths in finding texts that connect with listeners emotionally and setting them accessibly, and the work shows that the septuagenarian Rutter has lost none of his touch. The forces -- a different choir and conductor, but the same orchestra -- introduce an attractive, subtle contrast with the Requiem Mass, which itself is frequently gorgeous (sample the "Agnus Dei" for a taste of Rutter at his tuneful best). This recording may not win over Rutter detractors, but it's a fair bet that his fans will flock to it. --- James Manheim, AllMusic Review
