Notes & Reviews:

"This new release from Collegium actually is a compilation of 21 of Rutter's "church anthems" collected from previous recordings, a logical conceptual package designed both for those who already have these pieces, scattered throughout several CDs, and for newcomers to Rutter's work. Because the composer/conductor is very involved with and choosy about recording techniques and venues (only two producers and three locations are used in all of these selections), and he is uncompromising regarding a performance's musical values, sonic and musical consistency from track to track is simply not an issue, even though the recordings cover a period of more than 10 years. If you're a Rutter fan and you want this interesting mix of very popular and somewhat rare anthems on one disc, I need offer no further encouragement; if you want to know why Rutter is one of today's most popular and beloved composers, begin with track 4, A Gaelic Blessing, and you'll understand." -Classics Today (10/10)

BBC Music Magazine says, "The recordings of Rutter conducting his own music with the Cambridge Singers remain gleaming beacons of irrepressible music-making. " Directed by the author himself, this recording of The Cambridge Singers with City of London Sinfonia is a pure delight!
