In the Bleak Midwinter
Originally scored for Violin solo and Orchestra (see instrumental section) In the Bleak Midwinter was later commissioned to be turned into a children’s choir piece with chamber orchestra. The following year, it was arranged for SATB with full orchestra, and finally, SATB, Piano, and Violin Solo. No matter your size or instrumentation, this hauntingly beautiful tune will work for your group.
