John Rutter signs exclusive US deal with Oxford University Press

Tuesday 31st May, 2016

The Gift of Life
‘I am excited to announce this major change in my US publishing arrangements. For some months Oxford University Press and Hinshaw Music have been negotiating an agreement to bring all my music under one roof, and this has been successfully concluded. As from June 1st, virtually all of my published music will appear worldwide under the Oxford banner. I want to pay tribute to the years of devoted service given to me by Hinshaw Music, and I know that Oxford Music (newly expanded in the USA) will serve the US choral community with equal effectiveness. The supply of my titles in the US market will be uninterrupted.’

    I was lucky enough to be at Sevenoaks for the Singing Day last Saturday. It’s not often you get to meet and talk with someone whose work has given you and your friends so very much pleasure. It was a wonderful, wonderful day, and please thank Dr. Rutter for his work. It must go down as one of the best days of the year for me. Thank You Thank You Thank You

    Just want to tell all the great admiration I have for Maestro Rutter and his compositions. Sometimes I try myself at that exercise; but without neither studies nor teacher, I feel as throwing a stone in the sea and wait for a change. I really hope one day I’ll be able to compose divine melodies as he does and promote the magic of such a music in my own country: Cameroon. That is why I always keep in mind that, someday, even in my old age, I will do as maestro rutter in my country: even if I know I should find a way to attend real music classes. Respect, admiration; and thank you for your heart healing music Maestro.
    Cordially, Patrick

    My Mother, God Willing, will turn 90 in 5 years’ Time.
    She is plays the piano an the St Andrews Anglican Church in Rye, Victoria, Australia.
    Her favourite Psalm Is 121 – The Lord is Thy Keeper
    Just wondered if you would be interested in a commission for a new musical accompaniment interpretation of this beyond the traditional King George edition?
    Hope to hear from you
    Very best respect, and regards,
    Andrew Johnston

  5. Please could you ask Mr Rutter whether our choir, the Dyfed Choir, is able to use some photographs of our concert with him conductiong, in the WexfordFestival some years ago. We are producing a 50th anniversary booklet of the Choir and I have written an article about our time with him performing the Requiem. I have two photos of him, on stage and also signing autographs during the rehearsal that I would like to put with the article. The booklet will be sold to choir members, past and present and maybe some patrons. Best wishes
    Kathy Sleigh

  6. I would like contact/address information. I have a live recording of Requiem I think Mr. Rutter would be interested.

      Thanks, Emma Harrison

  7. The photos from 1997 in New York

    Good Evening, Maestro Rutter,

    I hope this finds you well and not too disrupted by all of the changes happening in England.

    You will likely not remember me. I sang with you in 1997 at the “AOL Concert Chorus”, the Messiah in Carnegie Hall. I’m inserting a few photos of that wonderful event and my speaking with you about my growing up learning from the Trapp Family Singers.

    This August, my choir from the Cathedral Church of St. John will come to England for a glorious week of singing. We are to stay at the “Double Tree Hilton London Westminster” on 30 John Islip Street, London. We begin with Eucharist and Evensong at Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin for 3 days. Then a week of residency at we are in residency at Westminster Abbey. We are currently scheduled to sing 5:00 pm Evensong in Westminster Tuesday, 23 August through Saturday evening, 27 August, then Matins and Eucharist early Evensong on Sunday,
    28 August.

    We are to be staying at the Double tree Hilton Westminster Hotel, London on 30 John Islip Street, London, SW1P 4DD, United Kingdom TEL: +44-207-630-1000 FAX: +44-207-233 7575

    In our “free” time, I’m hoping to explore sites or exhibits of the beginnings of the early Protestant church:
    Cranmer and Queen I steering the early Protestant church and the 1549 Book of Common Prayer. As a birthright Quaker recently baptized in the Episcopal church, I find these foundations to be fascinating. To sing Evensong at Westminster is a dream come true. Not unlike the power of singing in Carnegie Hall.

    If there is a chance that you could come to hear us, it would be a true honor to greet you. And, congratulations on your recent reorganization of your music under Oxford Music.
    Cordially, Kristin
