Vocal Arts Academy (Emily Crocker, director). 2013-January-28.
John Rutter, born in London and educated at Clare College of Cambridge University, is known as the founder of the Cambridge Singers, as a choral conductor, and as a masterful arranger of songs, anthems and carols. His own compositions, written in a traditional style, are almost exclusively choral, but also include large orchestral works, opera, pop and light music, and music for BBC television. "For the Beauty of the Earth," published in 1980, was written for Rosemary Heffley and the Texas Choral Directors' Association. The text is by F. S. Pierpoint (1835-1917). "
