Like many in the UK, I woke up to an early blast of freezing temperatures this morning. The frost is deep and crisp and even. The pond is starting to ice over. “The hose is froze”.
And while I live in a mild temperate climate, far from the extremes that many friends and colleagues around the world experience, there remains no doubt that winter is coming even here.
I always associate the different seasons and time of the year with different music. And like many composers that is also reflected in my writing.
With that in mind, here is something to listen to from the warmth of the indoors – a small composition of mine from a few seasons ago, called “Snow on Snow”. The words (which I read aloud) are from Christina Rosetti’s “In the Bleak Midwinter”.
