In The Bleak Mid Winter (2019)

In The Bleak Mid Winter


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!



  1. In The Bleak Mid Winter (03:39)
