With a text by John Rutter, this secular carol is a true celebration of all that we love about the festive season.
Owain Park’s arrangement presents a new take on this Christmas classic, drawing on Rutter’s evocative orchestral colours to create this characterful and heart-warming arrangement for a cappella voices. This arrangement of The Very Best Time of Year has been recorded by The Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge, conducted by Stephen Layton, on the album Yulefest! (Hyperion, CDA68087).
Also available in an SATB version by John Rutter
