This tender Christmas song will appeal to all fans of John Rutter's music. With a simple, appealing melody and a flowing accompaniment, The Colours of Christmas evokes a touching sense of longing for the joys of the festive season. A beautifully written piece that is sure to become a classic with choirs across the globe.
As usual, this is typical of the high standard of compositions by John Rutter. I am the conductor of an SATB Ensemble, who perform a wide variety of music, but John Rutter is by far the firm favourite. Anonymous

My choir love this piece and are keen to get it under their belt in time for their Christmas Concert on 17th December. The seting is simple enough not to put no-music readers off, but also challenging. So we like it a lot. Anonymous

Straight forward musically but tuneful with a simple message - very well received by the singers and the congregation when used recently. Anonymous

Our Music Director and Pianist obviously thinks that John Rutter is a great arranger of music, which is why, as librarian for a choir, they asked me to order it!

When ordering I didn't know that parts of the SA version differs from the SATB version (there's a variation on the alto). Have had to re-order to ensure compatibility. Anonymous
