Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thank you all so much for all the kind comments and emails about the Christmas Box I sent to Diana. The stitching community is so kind and such an ego boost!!!
By the Post Title you might think I'm going to talk about the story by Dickens, again... not today - I am sort of short of things stitchity to write about as I am still secret stitching - I think I will post about a favorite Carol of mine and make it another musical Friday Posting.
I love Christmas music, all kinds from all times, and another favorite pieces of music from the season would have to be "In the Bleak Midwinter." Here are the King's College Cambridge Choir from 2005 singing this lovely song...
The song is based on a poem written by Christina Rossetti one of the 19th centuries most important poets. The poem was set to music written by Gustav Holst in about 1904/1906. If you would like to read a bit more about this song you may click HERE. Enjoy!!
Thanks for stopping by - do come again!
