“This 60th-birthday tribute brings together a selection of John Rutter's short anthems and folksong arrangements, plus a couple of extracts from his Requiem. Impeccably crafted, they're invariably neatly and effectively composed, and not too difficult for amateur choirs. These performances given under the composer's baton by a choir he founded are faultless and presumably definitive. The sound is warm and lucid.”
