In the Bleak Midwinter

I might be an athiest (although not a militant one) but I still love a good Christmas carol. In the Bleak Midwinter, adapted from a poem by Christina Rossetti with musivc by Gustav Holst, is one of my favourites. Takes me back to carol concerts when I was st primary school – a long time ago.

This version by the Welsh folk duo Paper Aeroplanes is beautifully sung and sends a shiver down the spine.
