This is a digital PDF Sheet music for the song “In the Bleak Midwinter” from the piano solo book “Easier Christmas Piano Solos Music Book” by Jason Tonioli.
Includes both the spiral bound book and the CD for Easier Piano Hymns
Side Notes: In the Bleak of Winter” is a poem by the English poet Christina Rossetti and was published in a magazine in 1872. It was set to music 35 years later. This is one of the lesser-known Christmas songs that I think every person should be familiar with. One of my all-time favorite performances of this tune is done by the Norwegian singer Sissel Kyrkjebø. If you’ve never heard hersing, you should search for her arrangement of this song. I tried really hard to keep this arrangement simple, while not losing some of the harmonies. It came out a little more challenging than I would prefer for an “easier” book, but I hope it is a welcome challenge as you start to become familiar with the chord patterns, I use in many of my songs.
