About

Bushes and Briars, the title song of our recording, is one of twenty-five arrangements for unaccompanied, mixed voices, compiled in Books 1 and 2 of Folk Songs for Choirs (Oxford Press), edited by John Rutter. Some of the finest choral arrangements of both British and American folk songs are found in this collection. On several occasions, St. Charles Singers has had the honor of singing many of these treasured arrangements under Mr. Rutter’s direction, and we are grateful to him for his friendship and inspiration.
