    About our team

    A high-profile team of professional musicians and educators delivers the Sherborne Choral Course. Here is a brief guide to the main tutors.

    John Rutter CBE

    John Rutter is one of the best-known English composers and conductors of his generation. His music is characterised by beautiful melodies that resonate with audiences around the world.

    Longer compositions include Requiem, Gloria, Mass of the Children and The Gift of Life, while his shorter pieces are justifiably famous. Many will be familiar with anthems such as For the Beauty of the Earth, All Things Bright and Beautiful and The Lord Bless You and Keep You both from their extensive radio play and from performing them in concert.

    John was Director of Music at Clare College, Cambridge, and leads the Cambridge Singers, who have made more than 50 recordings since the 1980s. He established the Collegium record label in 1983.

    John will be sharing a new composition at the Sherborne Choral Course, leading the choir through rehearsals and conducting them during evensong in Sherborne Abbey.

    Bob Chilcott

    Bob Chilcott has been described by The Observer as a “contemporary hero of choral music” – an epithet that neatly captures his contribution to the British choral tradition. Bob was a choral scholar at King’s College, Cambridge and performed with the highly popular King’s Singers for 12 years.

    With a particular reputation for compositions that engage young people, Bob is renowned for his friendly style. His St John Passion, Salisbury Vespers and Requiem are well known to many, both as recordings and performance pieces. They speak of his immersion in the Church’s choral tradition, but Bob’s expertise does not end there. As Principal Guest Conductor of the BBC Singers since 2002, he knows how to bring the best out of any choir, whether they are preparing for a great liturgical act or to perform a piece of secular music in concert.

    James Henderson

    As Director of Music at Sherborne School, James oversees the Sherborne Choral Course and is a lead tutor and conductor.

    An experienced tutor on similar courses elsewhere in the country, James is steeped in the Church’s musical traditions. He regularly conducts Sherborne’s choir as it leads services in the Abbey, and works closely with the clergy and staff team to ensure that the music is of the very highest quality.

    James came to Sherborne in 2005 having previously been involved with the music at Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, and having been Director of Music at Portsmouth Grammar School where he worked with the London Mozart Players in the Portsmouth Festivities. Thanks in no small part to his visionary leadership of the department, Sherborne is widely recognised as one of the country’s foremost independent schools for Music. Indeed, The Week named the School 'Best for Music' in its Independent Schools Guide – a well-deserved accolade that underscores the credentials of its Choral Course.
