Advent Day 1
"In the bleak mid-winter
Frosty wind made moan,”
Blow, Blow Thou Winter Wind, John Everett Millais.
To celebrate advent each day will have a section of Christina Rossetti’s poem A Christmas Carol and an accompanying artwork which illustrates the text.
The 1860’s poem was later put to music by Gustav Theodore Holst & Harold Edwin Darke, the tune of which is entitled Cranham. It was published as a hymn in the 1906 English Hymnal and is popularly known today as In The Bleak Mid-Winter.
