When blossoms flowered 'mid the snows upon a winter night Was born the Child the Christmas Rose, The King of Love and Light The angels sang, the shepherds sang, The grateful earth rejoiced And at His blessed birth the stars Their exultation voiced. Again the heart with rapture glows to greet the holy night that gave the world its Christmas Rose, its king of Love and Light Let ev'ry voice acclaim His name, The grateful chorus swell From paradise to earth He came that we with Him might dwell O come let us adore him O come let us adore Him O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord. O come let us adore Him Ah! Adore Him, Christ, the Lord.

Charles Flynn to present the College with a copy of the sheet music for the well-known Christmas carol, Gesu Bambino , composed by Pietro Yon in Vincent on the Hudson.
Constantino Yon who was for many years director of music at the Mount. Vagt noted that it was unusual for a school to have such a famous Christmas carol dedicated to it. It has been recorded by famous artists such as Domingo, Pavarotti, Battle and others.
It was published in by J. Francis Xavier Church in Born in Italy, Pietro Yon came to the U. Francis Xavier Church, Manhattan, a position he held until His brother S. Vincent Ferrer Church, also in Manhattan. Two years later he was named music director. He was a consultant for both the Cathedral and for Carnegie Hall when they were seeking new organs. Among his pupils was Cole Porter, as well as many noted organists.
Pietro Yon died in on the feast of St. Cecilia, patron of musicians, Nov. Among the mourners at his funeral was Toscanini. Again the heart with rapture glows to greet the holy night, That gave the world its Christmas Rose, its King of Love and Light. From paradise to earth He came that we with Him might dwell. Merry Christmas! Thank you for posting this. I was always deeply moved by the exquisite lyrics and melody.
The irony is that one day I would be attracted to the Sisters of Charity. Again, many thanks and many Christmas blessings. Constantino Yon was Director of music. I will always remember the beauty of his playing on the college organ. It was a musical treat. My mother graduated from the Mount in Her minor was music and she loved Gesu Bambino.
One of her professors was the brother of the composer. It is such a beautiful hymn and unfortunately it is not heard as frequently as some other Christmas hymns.

Gesu Bambino (Pietro Yon)
The melody was used by Frederick H. The music historian Salvatore Basile notes: "The song would achieve the near-impossible feat of surviving in the standard holiday repertoire, with important performances, innumerable recordings, and every kind of vocal and instrumental arrangement. Osanna, osanna cantano con giubilante cor i tuoi pastori ed angeli o re di luce e amor. Venite adoremus venite adoremus venite adoremus Dominum.
