“I have always enjoyed carols ever since I first sang them as a member of my school choir, and it was not long before I began to write carols of my own—in fact my first two published compositions were the Nativity Carol and the Shepherd’s Pipe Carol. For any musician involved in choral music, Christmas is an especially joyous time, and I am indeed happy that it has played a part in my musical life for so many years.” JOHN RUTTER
