for flute, harpsichord, and strings or flute and piano The instrumentation is the same as Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.5. The Suite is made up of six movements ranging from `a Bach-like Aria' to a 'Richard Rodgers-style Waltz'. Rutter's own style comes forth most strongly in the final Rondeau with its characteristically forward-driving rhythms and beautiful melodic lines. Evoking an 'antique' spirit, each movement is based on a Baroque or Classical style. Full scores and parts are available on hire.
Suitable for SATB with clarinet and organ, or clarinet, harp, and strings, this is a setting of words from Psalm 27 featuring a solo clarinet with various choral groupings. It also includes a clarinet part in the vocal score.
Festival hymn with introductory fanfare for SATB, brass ensemble (4 trumpets, 3 trombones or 2 horns and one trombone, tuba), timpani, percussion, and organ, or for SATB and orchestra Orchestral material is available on hire. No. 2 of Two Hymns of Praise
London Town was commissioned and written to be performed by the combined forces of unison children's choir and SATB mixed voices, with piano. The vividly communicative six-movement work, which is accompanied throughout, is full of musical contrasts from the jaunty 'London Zoo' to the solemn 'Lines written in the Tower of London'. The work celebrates London through its six songs and contains texts by Rudyard Kipling, Walter Raleigh, and William Wordsworth alongside new material by Delphine Chalmers and the composer. It has sections for adult voices alone and sections for children's voices alone alongside passages for the two forces to combine as a full choir.
