In The Bleak Mid Winter

by Elegant Simplicity



Our 2019 Xmas Single is a sweet litle rework of the classic 'In The Bleak Mid Winter '. . . taken to a whole new level that original composer Gustav Holst might not have approved!

Faithful to the original tune, more or less, it's the middle secton that is of great interest. . . it's simply awesome! If you can't wait to get there, fast forward to 01:37 :)

I was toying with the idea of calling the track 'In The Bleak Mid Nuclear Winter', given the downbeat and not very Christmassy album cover. But tradition and maybe common sense prevailed.

I hope you enjoy the song.


Lyrics? Nah . . . this is an INSTRUMENTAL version!
