John Rutter's The Gift Of Life - Six Canticles Of Creation for mixed choir (double choir for movement 3) with orchestra or chamber ensemble.

The Gift of Life is a six-movement choral celebration of the living earth and its creation. Setting a variety of sacred texts, including new words by the composer, the work includes the mystical 'Hymn to the Creator of Light', for double choir, as its central canticle. The surrounding movements offer a kaleidoscope of moods, from the spirited 'O all ye works of the Lord' to the majestic 'O Lord, how manifold are thy works' and culminating in the inspirational 'Believe in life'. The accompaniment is available in two versions: full orchestra or chamber ensemble.

Eastbourne GB Soprano, The Bach Choir
It was purchased as I'm singing in John Rutter's 70th birthday concert in St Paul's Cathedral on 5th November 2015 and wanted to have my own copy rather than a hired one. The printing is good and easy to read.
No bad points.
