    Description: The Very Best Time of Year

    This year, our Christmas concert will feature the carols of John Rutter.  Born in 1945, Rutter is considered to be the most celebrated and popular composer of Christmas music alive today.  His music displays influences of the English and French choral traditions of the 20th century as well as light music and American classic songwriting. A review in the London Evening Standard said, “For the infectiousness of his melodic invention and consummate craftsmanship, Rutter has few peers”.  The Geelong Chorale will perform a selection of his best known original compositions  along with some of his masterful arrangements. There will also be other popular carols, some with audience participation.
