A Child of the Snows comes from a set of three carols, settings of poems by G.K. Chesterton.

Duration: 4mins 15s.

G.K.C. was a great traveller and on his wanderings a friend to everyone he met. In his own house, he was famed for his warmth and hospitality. It is not surprising, then that The Inn was for him almost a spiritual symbol. In all of my settings of his poems I have tried to convey the sense of a yearning journey of life coupled with the joy of finding something thought lost forever: we travel to a place that, if we are truthful, we never really left.

In A Child of the Snows I have tried to suggest the wandering, wondering journey to the next staging post, 'the Inn at the end of the world'.

  • There is heard a hymn when the panes are dim,
  • And never before or again,
  • When the nights are strong with a darkness long,
  • And the dark is alive with rain.
  • Never we know but in sleet and in snow,
  • The place where the great fires are,
  • That the midst of the earth is a raging mirth
  • And the heart of the earth a star.
  • And at night we win to the ancient inn
  • Where the child in the frost is furled,
  • We follow the feet where all souls meet
  • At the inn at the end of the world.
  • The gods lie dead where the leaves lie red,
  • For the flame of the sun is flown,
  • The gods lie cold where the leaves lie gold,
  • And a Child comes forth alone.
