One of our many favorite Christmas carols is played for us this morning on 12 string guitar by Paul Loether. In the Bleak Midwinter first appeared in January of 1872 as a poem entitled, A Christmas Carol by British poet Christina Rossetti. In 1906, Gustav Holst (1874-1943) set it to an original tune, “Cranham,” and that setting appears in our hymnal at #112.
We thank Paul for sending us this recording and hope you enjoy it!
