A Gaelic Blessing
Down 51. Lowest position since 2007. John Rutter is a Hall of Fame One Hit Wonder.
Rutter is known for his beautiful simplistic choral miniatures and this is the finest example of them all. Commissioned by an American Methodist church, the lush string accompaniment perfectly matches the serene text Rutter chooses to set. Lasting under two minutes, A Gaelic Blessing is an enduring popular choice at weddings, christenings and funerals.
