DetailsIn this atmospheric piece Gabriel Jackson sets a text by the Victorian poet Christina Rossetti. The first stanza is sung by sopranos only, with expressive chromatic lines evoking the 'darkness' and 'chillness' referred to in the text. The music flowers into four parts for the contrasting second stanza, with rich harmonies and flowing melismas creating a sumptuous texture.
