Two by John Rutter for a midweek pause.....
For The Beauty of The Earth
God Be in My Head
In this article from the Telegraph Rutter aged 66, says he isn’t really religious, even if his music might be, but he’s capable of feeling a certain mystical awe .
“I was baptised Church of England, I want to be buried in the Church of England, in a country churchyard and all the rest of it. I’d be lost without it: it’s part of me.
“But even the Church of England has become more fundamentalist. It’s started to get a fanatical gleam in its eye. I get worried about fanaticism and fundamentalism because I don’t think they bring out the best in people.”
I think that the Catholic church has that gleam too sometimes !
