O come all ye faithful employs television footage of the poet Christopher Logue reading the verse from which Sutcliffe’s film takes its name. Logue sits on a sofa, there is a busy Aztec-style pattern on the cushion behind him, the colours are 1970s browns and oranges and there is something faintly bohemian about his domestic surrounds. He reads from a book, head bent, sometimes nodding with emphasis, gently beating out the meter of the verse with his words. The poem speaks of unity and love, and, like ‘The Garden of Proserpine’, a sense of regeneration and renewal.” – Michelle Cotton, MAP Magazine, 2009.
