Item Number: CF.CM9302

ISBN 825890926. Text: Christina Rossetti.

John Ratledge's four-part a cappella setting of Christina Rossetti's simple yet poignant text approaches melody and harmony in a lyrical manner. The straight-forward harmonies are given color and nuance through the addition of rich non-harmonic chord tones that represent life's struggles. My Gift celebrates the transforming power of spirituality when individuals are vulnerable enough to give themselves fully to the Higher Power. A touching addition to any concert program.
