for SATB (with divisions) and piano This sombre and evocative 'Stabat mater' is taken from Passion Music, a concert and liturgical work that continues Todd's fusion of jazz and choral music so successfully blended in his Mass in Blue. The delicate piano part often falls away to spiritual a cappella sections, and a soaring line for solo soprano rises out of the texture to draw the setting to a close.
for SATB (with divisions) and harp or piano This is a simple and gentle setting of the popular American folk hymn. Beginning softly with the sopranos accompanied by piano/harp in the first verse, Rutter explores a wide variety of textures, building to a powerful final verse before ebbing away in a poignantly quiet close.
Die ou bekende en geliefde FAK-sangbundel het in 2012 ín welkome aanvulling gekry. Liedjies wat die afgelope 40 jaar in Afrikaanse musiek geblom het, kry plek in die nuwe Volume II. Hierdie nuwe sangbundel maak plek vir 400 liedjies wat geskryf en gesing is sedert die vorige uitgawe van 1979. Vanjaar, 2012, is ook die 75ste bestaansjaar van die FAK-sangbundel en juis daarom is besluit om die wonder van Afrikaanse musiek behoorlik te vier met die uitreiking van ín nuwe sangbundel. Die nuwe rubrieke sluit in: Immergroen & populer; Kleinkuns; Kinderliedjies; Geestelike liedjies; Tradisionele liedjies; Kunsmusiek en Koormusiek. Van die gewildste en bekendste werke deur Afrikaanse musieklegendes soos Rina Hugo, Ge Korsten, Chris Chameleon, Steve Hofmeyr, die Briels, Anton Goosen en Laurika Rauch is in die bundel vervat, met treffers soos Ballade vir ín enkeling,De la Rey, Engel, Houtkruis en Kinders van die wind. Kenners van Afrikaanse musiek, soos Mimi Coertze, Wessel van Wyk, Anneke Lamont en wyle Christa Steyn was betrokke by die keuse van die beste uit die nuwere Afrikaanse musiekskat. Die nuwe FAK-sangbundel vervang nie die ou bundel met sy bekende volksliedjies soos Aanstap Rooies, My hartjie, my liefie en Sarie Marais nie. Die nuwe bundel is eerder daarop gemik om die skatkis van Afrikaanse musiek wat bewaar moet word, uit te brei. Benewens die rubriekindeling het die bundel ook ín register volgens liedere se titels en eerste reels.
for SATB unaccompanied Images of Peace resulted from a request for a work that would encourage peace and understanding while not focussing on any particular creed or belief, and Alan Bullard approached this concept by choosing texts from a range of sources, including the English metaphysical and pastoral traditions, and the Taoist, Jewish, and Christian traditions. The set of five songs are designed as a symphonic whole, with the first and last ('Sweet Peace' and 'Bread of Peace') partly sharing the same material, book-ending three contrasting movements, a lively scherzo ('Rainbow of Peace'), an expressive slow movement ('Peace in the world'), and an elegant allegretto ('Doves of Peace').
for SATB (with divisions) and piano This arrangement of Gruber's timeless carol is warm and gentle. The first two verses are accompanied by gentle arpeggiated figures, leading to a third and final verse which is given profound depth through its largely unaccompanied scoring. The carol was recorded by the Cambridge Singers, directed by John Rutter, on the The John Rutter Christmas Album (Collegium Records CSCD510). Conductor's scores and instrumental parts are available from the publisher, as is Rutter's alternative unaccompanied arrangement.
Junior Voiceworks at Christmas is a wonderful collection of seasonal songs for children. Building on the success of his Junior Voiceworks 1 and 2, Kevin Stannard has collected 40 inspirational pieces for the Christmas season, ranging from rounds to raps, and from folk pieces to well-known carols in sparkling new arrangements. With excellent practical advice and rehearsal notes, and an accompanying CD, this volume meets the needs of all schools and choral groups for this special time of year.
for SATB & piano/organ & brass/orchestra In keeping with its title, this Christmas carol is bursting with joyous energy. Taking Lowell Mason's melody, which was based on an earlier melody by Handel, Rutter adds a virtuosic accompaniment which can be played by either piano, organ, orchestra, or brass ensemble and plays a prominent role in the carol. Scores and parts for the accompaniment are available on sale or on hire/rental from Oxford University Press. This carol forms part of the Christmas collection Joy to the World.
for SATB (with divisions) unaccompanied This reflective carol (setting a text by the composer) features an affecting recurring melody, sumptuous harmonies, and long, expressive phrases. Though it has moments of great intensity, the carol is primarily quietly optimistic in mood, with the homophonic texture and changing metre highlighting the heartfelt devotion of the text.
for SATB unaccompanied This lively reimagining of the traditional hymn is a thrilling a cappella arrangement which pairs the soaring legato melody with a rhythmic vocal accompaniment. Together, these elements capture both the gentle hope and the profound joy contained in the text. Also including moments of tenderness and reflection, the piece comes to a rousing close with an energy that engages singers and audience alike. Also available in a version for SSA unaccompanied.
for SA and harp or piano This arrangement of the hymn tune Royal Oak is not to be confused with Rutter's famous original composition of the same title, which also sets the beloved text by C.F. Alexander. The elegant text praising God's creation, combined with Rutter's skilful handling of the hymn tune, makes this piece ideally suited for any religious service.
for SATB and organ/chamber orchestra This joyous yet reflective Christmas carol will appeal to both choir and audience. It is characterized by a soaring melody, an artful use of texture, and a gentle expressiveness, heightened by modal inflections and the organ accompaniment. The text, written by the composer, is inspired by an inscription in Durham Cathedral by the Venerable Bede: 'Christus est stella matutina'.
for SATB and piano or chamber ensemble Written in 1978 for the choir of Clare College, Cambridge, this gentle, dreamy lullaby has gone on to become one of John Rutter's most popular carols. Full scores and instrumental parts (flute, oboe, harp, and strings) are available on hire and on sale. Also available in a version for SSAA.
for SATB and organ Written for the 2018 BBC Advent broadcast sung by the choir of St John's College, Cambridge, A Prayer to St John the Baptist sets an artfully crafted text that combines Guido d'Arezzo's Ut queant laxis (itself a Hymn to John the Baptist, as well as a medieval music-teaching mnemonic) with Thomas Merton's poem on the same subject. The organ's flowing quavers represent Merton's baptismal 'rivers of water', while the largely octatonic melodies conjure a tellingly mysterious atmosphere.
for SAATB unaccompanied A piece made famous by the award-winning a cappella group Vocado, Coffee Time is an upbeat dedication to the down time we all crave, for sharing thoughts, silence, and that aroma! Founded on classic a cappella style and sense of fun, the piece boasts an infectious melody and bossa nova rhythm, with sumptuous key changes, scat rhythms, and contrasting sections. The piece is perfect for vocal groups or small- to medium-size choirs, and has the makings of a great encore or competition piece.
for SATB double choir unaccompanied This optimistic and affirmatory anthem sets a useful service text of general thanksgiving from the Book of Common Prayer. Chilcott makes full use of the imitation and antiphonal effects that these forces enable, while keeping the vocal lines and part-writing well within the capabilities of most church choirs.
for SSAA unaccompanied This lively reimagining of the traditional hymn is a thrilling a cappella arrangement which pairs the soaring legato melody with a rhythmic vocal accompaniment. Together, these elements capture both the gentle hope and the profound joy contained in the text. Also including moments of tenderness and reflection, the piece comes to a rousing close with an energy that engages singers and audience alike.
for solo voice, SATB (with divisions), flute, and piano John Rutter's timeless arrangement of Skylark, a standard of the golden age of American song, is rich, mellow, and mellifluous. Soaring lines for flute depict the eponymous songbird, and the classic Hoagy Carmichael tune is shared between solo voice and choir, the latter also often providing a cushion of evocative harmonies.
for SSA and piano In The Three Kings Chilcott sets verses from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's Christmas poem telling the story of the three kings' journey to Bethlehem. A sense of travel is created by the stately 6/8 time signature, and syncopations bring an air of excitement and wonder to the tale.
This companion volume provides organists with new, dedicated three-stave accompaniments to twenty-four of the twenty-eight choruses in the main Sacred Choruses volume. In every case, these organ transcriptions, made by John Rutter, are based directly on the original orchestral versions and will facilitate church performances without orchestra.
