Several melodies have been written setting the poem,
“In the Bleak Midwinter” by Christina Rossetti
to music. Hear I play the music by Gustav Holst on zither. Reading the poem, you’ll notice it has a Christmas/Nativity theme. But the other stanzas are a great reminder of God’s power at any time of year, and of the truest gift we can give Him – our heart.
Where I live Winter is still in full swing, so I thought I would share this beautiful piece.
I hope you enjoy this arrangement. If you like, feel free to download and share the mp3:
