From the very first measure, there is an impressionistic approach to this evocative Christmas text. Unique in its perspective, the poetry is filled with images of Bethlehem's palms and meaningful moments with the holy family. The melody is very special, flowing forward upon Chopin-esque piano writing, all creating a sacred nocturne of exquisite beauty. Stunning!
