John Rutter's popular music embraces hymn settings for choirs, Christmas carols, and epic choral works such as the Gloria and the Requiem. He's also written orchestral and instrumental pieces and TV soundtracks. Here are more facts you may not have known about this great composer.
When composing, Rutter will often work from mid-morning until midnight with only a break for dinner. He thrives on discipline and feels that the most vital aspect of any new piece is to come up with a first-rate idea, which then becomes a vital springboard for the piece as a whole. He prefers to make revisions and corrections as he goes along rather than revisit and make any changes after a piece has appeared in print.
