Another Sample of Rossetti’s Precious Christmas Gift

Christ is born!

For today’s Nativity feast, I wish to offer a few more samples of Christina Rossetti’s beautiful poem, “In the Bleak Midwinter,” for which Gustav Holst provided a musical setting. I wrote about the carol five years ago with different samplings: “In the Bleak Midwinter.” For this carol, I prefer female solos, and my favorite version from my personal album collection is with Kiri Te Kanawa. Here she sings for a televised holiday special.

I also found a version with Susan Boyle and Libera at Royal Albert Hall.

Merry Christmas!
