Celtic charisma with poetic polish. This reflective Christina Rossetti text sits so naturally with the haunting melody that it's hard to believe one was composed without the other. Each new counterline is finer than the last, creating a multi-layered masterpiece. No individual voicing is better than another so no choir should pass this one up. An optional SoundTrax CD boasts dramatic cymbal flourishes and an agile wooden flute obbligato.
