Britain’s leading choral composer and conductor, John Rutter CBE, returns to Northampton!

John invites you to sing a mixture of choral music, old and new, familiar and unfamiliar, including a selection of his most recent compositions, as well as choral classics from his new book Sacred Choruses.



He started composing in his teens (alongside his classmate, the late Sir John Tavener) and his work includes choral, orchestral and instrumental pieces, a piano concerto, two children’s operas, music for television, and specialist writing for such groups as the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble and the King’s Singers. He has written for the Queen's Golden Jubilee in St Paul's Cathedral, and the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

He collaborated with Sir David Willcocks on the four-volume series Carols for Choirs, an indispensable compendium for choristers around the world, and he has written several longer-form works that have become popular favourites, including his Gloria, Magnificat, and Requiem.

For many choirs, of course, no Christmas is complete without a Rutter carol!

Copies will be provided and will also available for sale, as will be recordings of all of John’s most popular works (and he will, of course, be on hand to sign them!). Enthusiastic singers of all levels are welcome to a hugely enjoyable day with this inspirational teacher. Coffee/Tea will be available at Registration and during the two breaks, but please bring a packed lunch with you (though there is a branch Waitrose opposite the school).



Booking is now closed. You can download a flyer and booking form by clicking the 'Download Ticket Order Form' button on the right. The hall is a large one but tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and we expect that this exciting day will be very popular.
