At this year's festival we are listening attentively to the carol 'What Child Is This'
The meaningful lyrics and the soulful melody of this carol by William Chatterton Dix evokes a palpable scenario. It gives the feeling that God himself has transformed into the form of man through this baby, and that the almighty has arrived to rescue humanity. "What child is this?"
DAY TWELVE - FESTIVAL END
souls stirred to truth -
in deep stillness of nights
sound of camel hoofs
