I'm really curious - what are peoples favorite winter songs - Christmas, yule or whatever.

I always loved singing The Sans Day Carol in our local Cornish Church with our School Choirs - days well past now unfortunately!

Cxxx

What is a winter song ? Is it different from a summer one or do you mean Christmas songs. If so My favourite is the Huron Carol.

If you mean winter(as opposed to Christmas, Yule seasonal festival stuff) I would like to suggest "Frobisher Bay" as a remarkable song that is really about the whole concept of "cold".

I kinda mean all christmas or yule or whatever you want to call the wintery festival thing that happens around this time of year.

Another fave of mine is Jonny Copin's adaptation of the Innocent's song by Charles Causley.

The Festival is called Christmas... We are are allowed to say Christmas, aren't we ? Or is that politically incorrect as well ?

Well, if we are on best seasonal festival songs I would go along with your Sans Day carol, along with two other ties for equal first, Vaughan Williams setting of "O little town of Bethlehem"(sorry, Americans, you have a different tune). And my third equal, Holst's setting of "In the Bleak Midwinter". Actually, I said vaughan Williams setting: I think he only matched the tune to the words, and harmonised it. I think it's traditional.

In The Bleak Midwinter, closely followed by jaze's choice. Haven't heard it by DVR, but Joni's is good enough for me.

Dermott O'Reilly's 'A Children's Winter'. A gentle song that evokes memories of childhood (especially mine). 'Love it!

A Children's Winter

The winter snow is a child's delight
As it brightens up the winter night
And coats the earth in a cheery white
As it softly drifts upon it.

The smiling faces watch the ground
As the snow is falling all around
And through the glass there comes no sound
As the snowflakes melt upon it.

Snow Man, Snow House… Hey, play with me
Shake the snow down from the tree
Games once played by you and me
Snow is softly falling.

The morning comes and the children play
Their laughter rings out through the day
They hope the snow is here to stay
And it won't be gone tomorrow.

Chorus

Sliding, running down the hill
The time for fun is now but still
As they climb up life's long hill
They're sure to meet some sorrow.

Chorus (Twice)

Sorry... the indentation of the chorus didn't register on the posting above. The chorus is the stanza that starts with 'Snow Man... Snow House....'

Hanover Winter Song here

I have a niece at Dartmouth -- why in the world would anyone want to live above the MD line????????

For the wolf-wind is wailing at the doorways,
And the snow drifts deep along the road,
And the ice gnomes are marching from their Norways,
And the great white cold walks abroad.

Crystal Silence by Chick Corea and Gary Burton. Not a song, but a tune that reflects the hidden beauty of the cold, cold winter.
