The John Rutter Christmas Piano Album


The John Rutter Christmas 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. Clearly presented and laid out, the transcriptions also include the texts (lyrics) within the piano score – this versatile collection is a joyous celebration of the season.

The sheet music is available as a physical volume and as digital sheet music.
