The inspiration for the film came from the poem by Christina Rossetti (born London, 1830). The visuals are complimented by a chorale performance of the poem by the Atlanta Master Chorale, Atlanta, Georgia (USA) Artistic Director and Conductor: Dr. Eric Nelson. Many thanks to James Verrecchia the Executive Director who kindly gave me permission to use their performance.
