The beautiful mother is bending (Nativity Song)
Jacopone da Todi (c. 1230-1306) was an Italian Franciscan. His Latin carol was translated by Sophie Jewett (1861-1909), poet and Professor of English Literature at Wellesley College. The tune was written by Lucy A. Plympton (1843-1919), who was Principal of the Female Academy in Albany, New York, until she left to become an undergraduate in the Wellesley Class of 1899. The carol and its tune were first printed in The Wellesley Song Book (1915).
