Alexander Campkin: The Crimson Sun

(I like to turn my volume up for this one … the “Gloria in excelsis Deo” is just so gorgeous!)

When the crimson sun had set
Low behind the wintry sea,
On the bright and cold midnight
Burst a sound of heavenly glee:

Gloria in excelsis Deo

Where the manger crib is laid,
In the city fair and free,
Hand in hand, this shepherds band
Worship Christ on bended knee.

Gloria in excelsis Deo

Join with us in welcome song,
Ye who in Christ’s Home abide,
Sing the Love of God above,
Shown at happy Christmas-tide.

Gloria in excelsis Deo

Rev George P Grantham (1833-1909)

I’ve been told it it acceptable to continue posting Christmas music. And so I shall. Besides … this has oboe in it, and quite beautifully played!
