Carl Rütti's choral music is 'sensuous and exuberant by turns, combining dazzling rhythms and soaring melodies with distinctively lush harmonies' (Choir and Organ Magazine).
The composer writes: "The Three Carols were initiated in 1996 by my friend Stephen Jackson (conductor of the BBC Symphony Chorus) for a Carol concert by the Wooburn Singers, to whom they are also dedicated. They were originally written for brass quintet and choir. I picked three texts out of the enormous choice of traditional Carols which could form three parts: Andante - Adagio - Presto."
The three carols are: I Wonder as I Wander (Andante), O Little Town of Bethlehem (Adagio), and Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day (Presto).
