A Healing Touch – John Rutter Interviewed by Jeremy Siepmann

CHRISTMAS ANTHOLOGY (A) - In Terra Pax (Doyle, Williams, City of London Choir, Bournemouth Symphony, Wetton)

Performances of carols both ancient and modern have become central to the celebration of Christmas. The choral music on this disc includes Holst’s surprisingly neglected Christmas Day, as well as music by Leighton, Joubert, Mathias, Gardner and Rutter. The nostalgic mood of Howells’s evergreen carol-anthems is echoed in Finzi’s In terra pax, which recalls the pealing of bells at midnight on a frosty Christmas Eve. The City of London Choir, which enjoys an enviable reputation as a ‘leader among nonprofessional choruses’ (The Times), makes its Naxos début with this delightful recording.
