One of my favorites, in the bleak midwinter, but my mother couldn't abide it, so this is a treat that brings back memories!

The same high school choir that
I mentioned above performed at their Christmas Festival Concert a rendition of this new arrangement
of another of Christina Rossetti's poem-hymns that incorporates the oboe melody from the Mission movie, by evangelical choir director Tom Fettke (our kids were a little less polished but perhaps a tad more evocative and soulful than this obviously mature adult choir performing in a more stolid Church setting). Enjoy!

Beautiful! I had not known until this year that Christina Rossetti provided the text for In the Bleak Midwinter.
