The classical view of heaven in art and music Is inspired through deep spiritual imagery and sounds. The great composers devoted much of their music to a concept that is almost impossible to grasp. Whether religious or non-religious, one cannot fail to be deeply affected by the beauty of their compositions.
John Rutter CBE was born in London and studied music at Clare College Cambridge where he became choir director in the 1970’s. He was a superb conductor and composer and in the 1980’s formed the renowned choir the Cambridge Singers, with whom he made many recordings of powerful music.
