The Wakefield Nativity

For the song Mary, the Mother of the Eternal Christ, became suddenly real in viewing a sculpture by Kenneth Carter in Exeter Cathedral. Life-size, a homely, strong and purposeful young woman appeared for a moment flesh, blood and bone. If I'd met her in the street I would have held my breath . . . and since then I have. A plain woman touched by God.

This music joins together with other works that feature Advent and the Christmas Story, notably the settings of the Advent and Christmas Collects, and the cantata Text is a Star setting an abridged sermon of  Lancelot Andrewes.
