Suffused with a sense of purity and innocence, Dies Natalis sets out to depict a newborn child's first sensations of the world. Set to the text of a poem by Thomas Traherne and inspired by Botticelli's painting Mystic Nativity, the sense of joy and wonder in the celebration of creation are conveyed with a spontaneity and rapture that are breathtaking.
