The story of "In The Bleak Midwinter"

Hello there fellow composers,
 
I was recently advised by a marketing person that I should write a blog about my work as a composer and composing creative practitioner as part of my shiny new website! I have done this and have so far written a few nuggets. I've just finished another one today and as it sort of fits in with the current strand of composers telling of their recent successes, I thought I'd share it with you. As I say in the blog, it is not at all typical of my usual output, but nevertheless, it has been a popular piece and I'm not going to thumb my nose at that!
 
 
Thanks for reading!
best wishes
Cheryl

Hello again!
 
It has been brought to my attention that it's tricky to find the actual recordings of these arrangements. I have recordings of two of them - the low voices and the high voices with piano. Here are the links straight to Youtube if you're struggling with my website:
 
 
and
 
 
I've also put the links into my post in "New Print Publications"
Thanks

Cheryl,
   I looked for the PDF to peruse as the sound on my laptop is busted.  Is there a partial one online somewhere?  I think the blog is a good idea.  One big thing I would suggest is to use good keyword tagging to help drive traffic to what you write.  Perhaps you already did this?  The title of your piece is in itself great advertising as the traditional "In the Bleak Midwinter" is probably known to every choral musician.   Keep us informed as to your successes and progress.
