17. A Clare Benediction
John Rutter was once a member of the choir of Clare College Cambridge, and what better musical legacy to leave than this plaintive, twinkling melody. Deftly sung by a lone soprano, it's up to Finch to provide that sensitive accompaniment again, allowing Rutter's melody to take centre stage in a work that's clearly been closely informed by the composer's own life.
