2 December – In The Bleak Midwinter

Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow;
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

This version by Sarah McLachlan was another song on the 2008 Christmas mix CD. Wikipedia helpfully advises that the song is based on a poem by Christina Rossetti written before 1872, which then appeared in The English Hymnal in 1906 with a setting by Gustav Holst.
