Mid-winter Carol

Mid-winter Carol, or Dark December, also known as O, should we curse the Winter?, seems to be becoming a classic Christmas carol to rival Silent Night and others.  The song, beloved of choirs all over the world, has been included on a CD of carols for the Nativity by musician Tom Gregory, with the Dust and Mischief Band.  The CD includes several famous carols including the Holly and the Ivy, Gloucestershire Wassail, Sussex Carol, I saw three Ships, Joy to the World and The seven good Joys of Mary.  All the songs are beautifully arranged to make for a thoroughly enjoyable album.
