about

Our take on a holiday classic. Recorded in our home studio for the Quarter Rest with Joe Diaco special podcast episode 'A Very Quarter Rest Christmas Special Radio Hour and Fireside Chat.'

Lyrics by Christina Rossetti, published in 1872. Music originally composed by Gustav Holst around 1906.

lyrics

In the bleak mid-winter, frosty wind made moan
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow on snow
In the bleak mid-winter, long ago

Angels and Archangels may have gathered there,
Cherubim and seraphim thronged the air;
But his mother only, in her maiden bliss,
Worshiped the beloved with a kiss.

What can I give him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a wise man, I would do my part;
Yet what can I give him: give my heart

Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long long ago
