The Cambridge Singers' debut recording – a universal favourite.
This recording was the first to be made by the Cambridge Singers, shortly after the choir's formation in 1981. Featuring classic carols and carol arrangements, it is one of the label's most popular Christmas releases. Highlights include John Rutter's arrangements of such favourites as 'Three Kings of Orient', 'Away in a Manger' and 'Silent Night'.
John Rutter, English composer and conductor, is associated with choral music throughout the world. His recordings with the Cambridge Singers (the professional chamber choir he set up in 1983) have reached a wide global audience, many of them featuring his own music in definitive versions. Among John’s best-known choral works are Gloria, Requiem, Magnificat, Mass of the Children, and Visions, together with many church anthems, choral songs and Christmas carols.
