We’re thrilled to announce that we will present the world premiere of a new work by Carl Rütti, a wonderful Swiss composer with strong ties to the English choral tradition, at our autumn concert in November 2011!  Rütti writes in a musical language that has been described as “sensuous and exuberant by turns, combining dazzling rhythms and soaring melodies with distinctively lush harmonies” by Choir and Organ magazine.  The piece will be a setting of the Grace, the final verse of the Book of Revelation—a fitting close to a concert in the 400th anniversary year of the publication of the King James Bible. We can’t wait to see the finished product…
