Description: This original C.M.D. hymn tune and two SATB settings (with optional descant) were inspired by that of the composer's anthem This Advent moon, which sets a portion of the Christina Georgina Rossetti poem Advent. The present hymn tune and settings were subsequently composed to accommodate the Rossetti text for choir and congregational singing.
