About the Score
SATB chorus and orchestra
SATB chorus, piano, and oboe
In the Bleak Midwinter is an SATB setting of Christina Rossetti’s text originally scored for SATB Chorus, full orchestra with soprano solo. I later composed this piece for a variety of musical settings/versions in order to make it more accessible. The haunting melody introduced by the soprano soloist pervades the overall texture of the piece in a variety of vocal and orchestral colors.
