Sing, ye Heavens - Hymns for all time

Sing, ye Heavens is an inspiring album of 21 hymns spanning fifteen centuries of the history of Christian Europe, and including the world première of a new hymn by John Rutter himself, Eternal God.

Reflecting the immense riches of hymnody built up over centuries, this notably eclectic survey sees Gregorian Chant rubbing shoulders with German chorales, Celtic folk melodies alongside 18th-century London street songs—albeit from an Anglican perspective. The arrangements range from delicate accompaniment of the harp to thrilling festival treatments with brass, timpani, percussion and organ.
