John Rutter Conducts NSSP Choirs at Glasgow University

Over one hundred children from the Dioceses of Motherwell, Aberdeen and Paisley gathered in the Memorial Chapel of Glasgow University on 18 April to sing with John Rutter. The music chosen was John’s own Look at the world and A Clare Benediction. Children had been practising this music for several weeks in their schools with Choral Directors James Greechan, John Horton, Gordon Jack and Jane Howie.

John Rutter led an informal lunchtime concert for forty teachers and student teachers from the St. Andrew’s Foundation for Catholic Teacher Education. Director of the Foundation, Professor Roisín Coll and NSSP Adviser for Scotland, David Meiklejohn introduced the concert and welcomed the famous composer to the University. Congratulations were offered to David upon his appointment as honorary Senior Lecturer at the University, in which role he is teaching the next generation of school teachers about the importance of high quality singing and liturgical music in state schools.
