John Rutter Singing Day with Oxford Bach Choir

Saturday 11 May 2024

Olivier Hall, St Edward's School, Oxford

Singers from far and wide are invited to come and join John Rutter as he brings his very popular Singing Day to St Edward’s School.  We will explore some of John’s best-loved music.

John Rutter is an English composer and conductor, associated mainly with choral music and active internationally for many years. His larger choral works, Gloria, Requiem, Magnificat, Mass of the Children, The Gift of Life, and Visions, are widely performed around the world, and many of his shorter pieces such as The Lord bless you and keep you, For the beauty of the earth, Look at the world, and All things bright and beautiful have become ‘standards’. He has composed or arranged many Christmas carols.
