Christina Rossetti (1830-1894), born in London, was a devout Anglican and most of her poetic output is religious. Two of her most famous poems are ones for Christmastide : In the Bleak Midwinter and Love Came Down at Christmas. This brief choral work is based on the latter poem, which was published in Rossetti’s 1885 volume entitled Time Flies: a Reading Diary. At its publication, the poem was simply called, Christmastide. In her Introduction to R.W. Crump’s 2001 book (Penguin Books), Christina Rossetti: The Complete Poems, Betty S. Flowers provides a concise and beautiful overview of Rossetti’s poetry when she extols: "…the beauty of her lyricism, the perfect pitch and clarity of her line, the subtle effects of rhyme and rhythm." In a direct and simple manner, I have tried to capture these admirable poetic traits in my choral setting of Rossetti’s elegant words.
