In the bleak midwinter (Harold Darke)

The holst version was intended midwimter a congregational hymn. By contrast, Harold Darke’s setting was intended as a choral anthem, in which the first and third verses were given to soloists. It contains an organ part also.


I, however, turned it into an choral ‘only’ setting herebecause I mainly do vocal scores; it’s not original. That’s great to know. It has the unusual distinction of varying the melody from verse to verse, on which you can find a funny parody here, which combines the Holst and Darke versions.
