In the bleak mid-winter


In the bleak midwinter, based on the celebrated poem by Christina Rossetti (published 1872 in the January issue of Scribner’s Monthly) was first set to music by Holst, appearing in The English Hymnal in 1906. (Harold Darke’s setting of five years later is widely popular, even preferred to the Holst setting by many choirs). This instrumental arrangement is by Timothy Jackson, composer, arranger and principal horn in the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.
