This text, originally in the Catalan dialect, is generally associated with Christmas. It tells of giving various gifts – things that would have been familiar to the writer of the text – to the infant Jesus: raisins, olives, figs, sweet honey etc. There is a metaphorical hint of the events of Easter in the last lines.
The Son of the Virgin was written for a choir workshop with students of Ascham School (Sydney, Australia) when they visited St Mary’s College in Auckland as part of their tour to New Zealand in 2011.
- Text Note:
