The music of John Rutter is beloved for its joyful tunes and atmospheric harmonies. It reaches beyond its roots in the English choral tradition to create soundscapes which appeal to an international audience.

In What Sweeter Music, released to mark Rutter’s 70th birthday, ABC Classics presents some of the British composer’s best-loved choral works, performed by British and Australian choirs including The Cambridge Singers under the direction of the composer himself. Alongside the well-known Pie Jesu from Requiem, the gentle tenderness of For the Beauty of the Earth and the serenity of A Gaelic Blessing, the album features a number of less frequently performed gems such as Blow, Blow, Thou Winter Wind and the joyous Wells Jubilate.
