James R Day, Christina Rossetti
The original setting of this work, scored for soprano solo and piano, was written for my daughter's wedding. Emily and Kevin had a fondness for this poem by Christina Rossetti, and I was pleased to set it to music for this special occasion. Upon hearing its first performance, Gary St John(my long-time friend and conductor for the Sam Barlow High School Choir)asked me to write a choral arrangement for his concert choir. The Work as you see here was performed at the N.W. American Choral Directors Association Convention in Portland Oregon. J.R.D.
