A new EP of Rutter Orchestral Carols featuring the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge, alongside the Britten Sinfonia, conducted by Daniel Hyde will be released on Friday 24 November 2023.
Rutter Orchestral Carols includes beautiful orchestral arrangements of well-known favourites such as Silent Night and Sans Day Carol as well as Rutter’s original carols All bells in paradise and All the stars looked down, which is dedicated to the late Sir Stephen Cleobury.
“It was a pleasure to record a handful of John’s carols, some old, some new, in these colourful orchestrations… hopefully these new tracks will add a bit of magic to people’s Christmas this year,” said Daniel Hyde, Director of Music, King’s College
Two versions of the EP will be released:
- a 7-track EP available on Apple Music and Apple Music Classical (including O Holy Night as a bonus track).
- a 6-track EP on all other platforms
- O Holy Night will be released as a single at a later date.
