Advent Calendar Day 7 (1986)

This card was a collaboration with my then year-and-a-half-old son. I gave him a brush loaded with ink and he made the design. I added the words, again from the Revels. The words of "Lord of the Dance" were written in 1963 by Sydney Carter and set to the tune "Simple Gifts" which was composed in 1848 by Shaker Elder Joseph Brackett. This version on youtube is sung by John Langstaff, the founder of the Revels.
