Advent Light


Like everything else, Christmas carols have colours. O Little Town of Bethlehem is the colour of the world on a chill hazy morning when the sun is just above the horizon and the skies are pink and white: a palette of the softest grey blues, greens, the barest hint of rose red, palest gold. In Once in Royal David’s City, on the other hand, deepest royal blue and a moonless night sky enfold the nativity within their protective darkness and unfold to reveal Christ in Glory surrounded by white-robed saints.
