Subject: RE: In the Bleak Midwinter
I'm sorry to disagree Marje. As someone pointed out a few threads back, if we were discussing a trad folk song, then there would be no doubt that Darke's version is well and truly based on Holst's original setting of Rossetti's poem. Which is better is a matter of personal taste.
