    John Rutter publishes through Oxford University Press. You could try starting there.

    Some Rutter (quite a bit actually) have been arranged for brass ensemble accomp. Don't know about this one of the top of my head.

    I've arranged some Rutter in the past (namely the "Lord Bless You and Keep You" which is for sale at my website). I'm not aware of anyone having arranged this one, but if it hasn't been done I'd be willing to arrange it (copyright permitting).

    It's one of my favourite pieces. I have it for SATB - superb piece. It would be awsome for brass quartet.

    The version that Saints have done in the past has been arranged by someone called David Lawrence (I think it was him anyway, it's been a while since we've played it)

    It's running through my head as I write this though...

    We are doing a concert with a local church and their choir later in the year and this has been requested. If anyone can point me in a direction then its appreciated

    I too can hear it as I write, a beautiful setting. I am not aware of a brass band version, good luck in your search, maybe DaveR's suggestion is the most viable.

    Super piece. Rutter writes some super music. Cannot help with locating it though.

    I've just asked for permission to arrange it. Watch this space (but don't expect an answer overnight - last time it took me 3 months to get permission from John Rutter! :))

    Good news - I've just received permission to arrange this piece for brass band, so I'll start on this in the next few days.

    Well done and thanks for this. It is a superb song and the music, so simple yet beautiful. Please let me know how you get on.

    Well, it's taken David Roberts some time to complete the arrangement, but he has finally sent the score to me tonight so I am hoping to have the arrangement ready for sale at our trade stand at Weston contest on Sunday. If not it will be available on the website ( next week.
