Description

A lovely arrangement of Holst's In the bleak midwinter (text by Christina Rossetti) for two-part (mixed) choir (in canon) and piano. The lower voices begin as an echo.

Lyrics

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth sto,Od hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

Our God, Heaven cannot hold Him, nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign.
In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ.

What can I give Him, po,Or as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;

If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give Him: give my heart.
