A beautiful Rutter-style setting of Christina Rossetti's classic poem for SATB and organ. 'Love Came Down at Christmas’, was the winner of the 2017 Freudig Singers of West New York Composition Competition. – CA

"There is a wonderful balance of simplicity and complexity in this beautifully crafted SATB offering, with plenty of interest in the melodic shapes and appealing harmonies. Chris engages both the singer and the listener with a mood of reflective stillness and deep sincerity. Ideal for youth and community choirs.”
– Gina Sanders, International Soprano and Director of King’s College Chapel Choir, Auckland

The score can be purchased from Helbling Verlag.
