For the beauty of the earth (TTBB)

Accompanied; Men's voices; TTBB

Originally published in versions for SA and SATB voices, this classic Rutter anthem has now been adapted by the composer for performance by male-voice choirs. The flowing choral melodies perfectly complement the positive message of the well-known thanksgiving text by F. S. Pierpoint, and the gentle, arpeggiated keyboard part provides a supportive harmonic accompaniment.

Orchestration: 2fl, ob, 2cl, bsn, 2hn, perc, hp, str

The piece is also included in The John Rutter Piano Album, arranged for solo piano.
