Christmas Carol Spotlight: In the Bleak MidWinter

In the Bleak Midwinter isn't nearly as old as some of my favorite Carols, but it has the advantage of having been written by a remarkable female poet, Christina Rosetti, in 1872.  The poem became a Christmas Carol in 1906 and is one of the world's favorite Christmas hymns for choirs, as it is full of opportunities for dramatic pauses and individual expression.  The song just feels so wise to me, it calms me down and reminds me to think outside of myself.
