18. In the Bleak Mid Winter

Painted to the lyrics of the much-loved carol In the Bleak Midwinter, Matthews' vision is of a windswept snowscape, braved only by a couple of hardy Highland cows, while the residents of the medieval village are indoors making merry. The image inspired a new arrangement of the Gustav Holst classic, with a whole new section written and arranged into it by Wakeman.
