John Rutter: The Tewkesbury Collection  DCD 34107
Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum directed by Benjamin Nicholas

This was the final recording by Benjamin Nicholas with the men & boys of Tewkesbury Abbey Schola Cantorum before he went to Merton College, Oxford. Chosen to celebrate the works of our best loved composer of choral and church music, rather than sticking to familiar classics, this programme explores the full range of Rutter’s output, from The Lord is my Shepherd and Lord, Thou hast been our refuge to one of his more recent pieces, This is the Day, composed for the wedding of Their Royal Highnesses the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge. This CD is a fine addition to John Rutter discography that will delight lovers of his music.¬† Available from:
