The John Rutter Christmas Piano Album Released

On this day in 2020, The John Rutter Christmas Piano Album was released. The John Rutter Christmas Piano Album brings together eight of the composer’s best-loved seasonal choral pieces as piano transcriptions, made by John Rutter himself, for performance use or enjoyment at home. Designed for pianists at early intermediate level, the collection provides skilful and approachable arrangements of festive favourites such as Angels’ Carol and What sweeter music and of the more recent Colours of Christmas and Christ our Emmanuel. The gentle Mary’s Lullaby, meanwhile, features a newly written Epilogue, a homage to George Shearing and evoking the style of this celebrated jazz pianist.

The pieces in this collection have been recorded by Wayne Marshall on Decca Records. Also on the disc are the pieces from The John Rutter Piano Album
