17. In the Bleak Midwinter
Nothing says 'Christmas' like a choral arrangement of 'In The Bleak Midwinter'. But which one should you choose? There's the popular version by Holst (known as 'Cranham'), or there's an arrangement by choral whizz Bob Chilcott, but you're probably most likely to hear Harold Edward Darke's setting - the choir of King's College, Cambridge, use it every year at Christmas.
