Merry Christmas 2015

"He came down to earth from heaven,
Who is God and Lord of all,
And His shelter was a stable,
And His cradle was a stall:
With the poor, and mean, and lowly,
Lived on earth our Savior holy."

Cecil Frances Alexander (1818-1895)

Don Silvestro dei Gherarducci, Gradual 1 for San Michele a Murano (folio 38v), c. 1395
Tempera and gold on parchment, 570 x 380 mm (The Morgan Library and Museum, New York)
