The Nine Gifts

First line:
I bring you my body, darling dear
2011; commissioned by the Cathedral Choral Society of Washington DC
author of text

In 2008 the conductor Philip Brunelle asked me to write a piece for his church choir in Minneapolis, MN and sent me a book of poems by Kevin Crossley-Holland which included four beautiful Christmas texts. Over the following three years I set all of them for different choirs and we have recorded two of them for this disc. The first, Jesus, Springing, was written in 2010 for the choir of Harrow School. The second, The Nine Gifts, was written for J Reilly Lewis and the Cathedral Choral Society of Washington, DC in the same year. J Reilly Lewis, a deeply respected conductor in Washington and also a great supporter of Gretchen Kuhrmann and Choralis died suddenly in 2016, and the recording of this piece is dedicated to his memory.
