Lyrics: Christina Rossetti
Music: Paul Mealor
Format: Choral Octavo
Voicing: SATB a cappella

This new a cappella setting of the beautiful Christina Rossetti poem "In the Bleak Midwinter" establishes a new standard for this message. Beginning with sweeping lines of excitement and anticipation, the choir quickly settles in to hushed expressions of wonder. In verse one the sopranos carry the melody but pass it off to the tenors in verse two while a baritone soloist is featured in verse three while the choir supports the solo with passionate harmonic lines. The iconic final line of text: "what can I give Him? Give Him my heart" is scored in the lowest registers of the voice as if to suggest that the pronouncement does not even need to be heard, only felt.
