In a Bleak Midwinter by Christina Rossetti



Choir of King's College, Cambridge, England


In a bleak mid-winter

Frosty air made moan,

Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like stone;

Snow on snow

In the bleak mid-winter
Long ago

Christina Rossetti

This is my last post before Christmas!  I will return January 11, 2015.

Blessings on you all.  Rejoice is God's Glory and Gift!

  7. Hi Susan,

    Way back when, I was a choir boy. Not nearly as good as that amazing choir.

    A peaceful positive holiday season to you and your loved ones. Here's to a hopeful 2016.

    1. Holst is not recognized enough for his compositions. I love the music and the performance.

  12. This is my favourite Christmas carol, rather melancholic but very beautiful. I hope that you have had a very happy Christmas, Susan, and that a healthy and creative year is to come. (More stories on your writer blog - it has been a year now?!)
