Chapter 24 - In the Bleak Midwinter

Another quick post due to PhD work.

Today is the 185th anniversay of the birth of Christina Rossetti, one of the best of all Victorian poets.

As many of you will know her posthumously published poem In the Bleak Midwinter has become a popular Christmas carol after being set to music by the English composer Gustav Holst.  To celebrate both Rossetti's birth and the festive season here is Canadian singer/songwriter Sarah McLachlan performing her version of the carol (found on her 2006 festive album Wintersong).
