In the Bleak Midwinter
This is actually a poem, not a musical composition, but over the years many composers and arrangers have set the poem to music.
This has been around for around four years now, but I only heard it for the first time around a year ago. I was impressed and remain impressed.
I had no idea the man who wrote “The Planets” also wrote music to this poem, so it was a bit of a surprise to discover this link between Holst and Jacob Collier just two days before Christmas.
