happy birthday john rutter
by pieces of moments
Today is the 64th birthday of John Rutter who, as the kids at BBC Music Magazine adroitly observed, is the “choral world’s Father Christmas.”
And, to tie it all together, did you know that in 1974 Rutter visited Omaha, Nebraska (A.K.A. my glorious home town) to premiere his “Gloria”? Uh-huh.
