"Christus natus est" (2015) was written for the 106th Annual Christmas Carol Services of The Memorial Church, Harvard University, December 2015. The text is drawn from a poem by the American author Countee Cullen (1903–1946), a significant figure in the Harlem Renaissance. The poem was written in 1943 during World War II, and it proclaims a Christmas message in the midst of the world’s ongoing tragedies.
