New for Christmas from John Rutter Tuesday, September 15, 2009

John Rutter is well-known for his exquisite Christmas music, and this lovely piece continues his fine tradition.  I Wish You Christmas sets a delightfully star tinselcaptivating text to an equally wonderful piano accompaniment.  Filled with the musical warmth for which Rutter is so renowned, it's perfect for setting the mood in secular holiday concerts.

I wish you music, I wish you song,
With voices echoing, joyous and strong;
I wish you church bells, ringing true and clear;
I wish you Christmas, a merry Christmas,
A merry Christmas to remember all the year.
