Merry X-mas to all 12-22-23 "There is no Rose" a hymn for all time...

May the blessings, bounty and beauty of this gorgeous hymn by Stopford (my all time fav choral composer) bring you as much wondrous peace and loving comfort as it does me.



Thank you higher power for the eternal beauty of music which can never die!

(lyrics) There is no rose of such virtue, as is the rose that bare Jesu.


For in this rose contained was heaven and earth in little space.

Resmiranda.(Wondrous thing)

For by that rose we may well see that he is God in persons three

Pariforma.(One in form)

The angels sungen the shepherds too:

Gloria in excelsis Deo.(Glory to God in the highest)

Gaudeamus.(Let us rejoice)

Leave all this worldly mirth and follow we this joyful birth.

Transeamus.(Let us cross over)

There is no rose of such virtue,

as is the rose that bare Jesu.
