Discendi, Amor Santo

Combining the 15th century Bianco Da Siena text Laudi Spiritualis with a single verse from Christina Rossetti’s A Christmas Carol. In the first, the poet invites divine love to descend. In the latter, Rossetti considers the gift of love manifested in the birth of the Christ child. Together, they remind the listener that holy love may come in many forms.
