Shepherd's Pipe Carol, and other music by John Rutter.

This is another family favorite song, written by John Rutter. We first discovered it on the James Galway Christmas CD, if you listen you can see why, with all the flute solo's in the piece it is perfect for a man with his talent. The James Galway CD is one of our favorite Christmas CD's you can find. I think you might would tend to shy away from it thinking it would be all flute solo, but as this song shows his CD is full of Choir music with flute as a featured solo in the song.
This Youtube clip is actually for one of the receint Mormon Tabernacle Choir CD's, but it is the same arrangement as the Galway CD.
