Guest Presenter on Radio 3 ‘The Choir’

Friday 19th April, 2013

Tune in to The Choir on Radio 3 on Sunday at 5pm to hear a 90 minute programme John has made about Cambridge Choirs. The show celebrates the diversity of choral music-making taking place in and around the university colleges at Cambridge.

He meets up with Directors of Music, Choristers, Choral Scholars and musicians to find out what give each choir a character of its own. Music – chosen by the Directors of Music John spoke to – includes works by Vaughan Williams, Rachmaninov, Judith Weir, Purcell and Elgar.

    Dear Mr. Rutter –

    I am a huge fan of your music; we sing so many of your incredibly beautiful compositions in our church choir, and I always look forward to the weeks when one of your pieces has been chosen for us. Could you please answer a question? In “Thy Perfect Love,” how do we pronounce the word “close” in the phrase “close in my breast”? Is is pronounced with a soft “s”, as in “I stood close to her” or a hard “s”, as in “please close the door”? We’d like to get it right!
    Many thanks for your time.

    I greatly enjoyed your programme on Cambridge Music this afternoon. What struck a particular chord was the recording of the last few bars of ‘The Falcon’ which I sang as a young man under David Willcocks with the Bradford Festival Choral Society probably soon after it had been composed. Though I can remember very little now of the music, I know that the work made a deep impression on me and wished that I could have sung it again. But that isn’t likely to happen now. It was a challenging piece: the complicated rhythms 5/4, 7/4 took some mastering but a great work and I am so thankful that I sang it. Many, many thanks.
