The John Rutter Christmas Piano Album

Quick Overview

8 of his best-loved seasonal choral pieces in new transcriptions for solo piano

: Piano

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. Clearly
presented and laid out, the transcriptions also include the texts (lyrics) within the piano score, for reference
or potential sing-alongs. From the composer who has become synonymous with Christmas, this versatile
collection is a joyous celebration of the season.
