Notes & Reviews:

John Rutter's long-awaited new major work The Gift of Life, his first new composition in over 10 years is a six-movement choral celebration of the living earth, of creation, and of life itself, offering a kaleidoscope of moods from contemplative and prayerful to majestic and inspirational. With the inclusion of seven additional sacred chorale pieces, and the usual solid accompaniment of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra along with the Cambridge Singers ; this highly anticipated release with generous liner notes will likely be favored very quickly by Rutter fans.
