Yea, if I love

for women's choir
Settings of three poems by Christina Rossetti

Christina Rossetti penned three unpublished poems in 1870 entitled "By way of Remembrance".  Written at a time of extreme family crisis (her brother Dante was beginning his drug addiction) and a marriage proposal that Christina was to ultimately turn down (in spite of her deep love for the suitor), the voice in these poems is of one seeking a path of love on her own terms, empowered by a yet-to-be manifested cosmic reality.  


The settings are dedicated to those who brave the uncharted waters of love outside the traditional bonds of marriage.
