John Rutter’s Magnificat for soprano soloist, choir and orchestra was written in 1990, and the première took place in May of that year in Carnegie Hall, New York. The text, based on the prayer ascribed by St Luke to the Virgin Mary on learning that she was to give birth to Christ, is extended by the interpolation of Marian prayers and poems chosen by the composer, to create a celebratory work reminiscent of outdoor processions in honour of the Virgin.

The Falcon was Rutter’s first large-scale choral work, premiered in the chapel of King’s College, Cambridge in 1969. The work is based on a medieval poem rich with symbols of the Eucharist, the Grail legend and the Glastonbury thorn.

The album is completed by two festival anthems written for special occasions.
 

"Delightfully light-hearted, bubbly and immediately attractive."
