John Rutter: The Quest: Mixed Choir

Piano Reduction | Mixed Choir
Composer John Rutter
Publisher Oxford University Press
Instrumentation SATB and Piano

John Rutter's The Quest for SATB (with divisions), Oboe and Organ.

This poignant anthem was written in memory of the Revd Dr John Hughes (1978-2014), Dean of Jesus College, Cambridge. The text combines the nineteenth-century poet and Christian minister George MacDonald's emotive poem Lost and Found with the 'In paradisum' antiphon from the Burial Service in the Liber Usualis. The music is at times ethereal, melancholic, poignant, and life-affirming. The solo Oboe and Organ writing is integral to the emotive character of the piece, and the word-painting and angelic chorus moments encourage the listener to reflect on the subject at hand.

The Quest is featured on the Collegium Records CD The Gift of Life. An orchestration for chamber ensemble (solo Oboe, Harp and Strings) is available on hire/rental.
