Oxford Academic (Oxford University Press)

In this short film John Rutter reflects on his 50 or so years of composing some of the world’s most loved choral music, and offers some advice for emerging composers. For more short films featuring John Rutter, visit http://oxford.ly/2yWxTqN. John Rutter studied music at Clare College, Cambridge and first came to notice as a composer and arranger of Christmas carols and other choral pieces during those early years; today his compositions, including such concert-length works as Requiem, Magnificat, Mass of the Children, The Gift of Life, and Visions are performed around the world. John edits the Oxford Choral Classics series, and, with Sir David Willcocks, co-edited four volumes of Carols for Choirs. In 1983 he formed his own choir The Cambridge Singers, with whom he has made numerous recordings on the Collegium Records label, and he appears regularly in several countries as a guest conductor and choral ambassador. John holds a Lambeth Doctorate in Music, and was awarded a CBE for services to music in 2007. Music: ‘The Holy City’ from Visions, by John Rutter. Performed by Kerson Leong (violin), The Temple Church Boys’ Choir, The Cambridge Singers, and the Aurora Orchestra. Used by kind permission of Collegium records. © Oxford University Press
