Bernard Sexton has crafted a beautiful, flowing Christmas setting of Christina Rossetti’s text, which reminds us of the power and necessity of love: The birth of Jesus was an act of love and we are all summoned to perpetuate this love to others. The oboe part interplays nicely with the choral parts and adds another level of texture to the piece.
