Harold Darke - Small Photo
1888 – 1976

An English composer and organist, Darke was for many years the Organist of St. Michael, Cornhill. His famous setting of Christina Rossetti's In the Bleak Midwinter, giving to his delicate melody a beautiful and lilting organ part, is still often sung at the service of Nine Lessons and Carols at King's College, Cambridge and at similar services around the world. In the Bleak Midwinter was voted the greatest Christmas carol of all time in a poll of choral experts and choirmasters in 2008.  (Read more - Wikipedia article.)
