This is my second collaboration with lyricist Tom Clarke. It, like Dream Tonight, is a christmas song. This piece being of a much darker variety. The Texture changes with the mood of the lyrics. The main theme is "the cruel wind blows" in cannon style. This piece is for 4-voice choir and piano. There are frequent time changes and texture changes.

The Lyrics go as follows:

The Frost Bound Wood. A robin brought some holly all covered in snow. The cruel wind blows. From each little berry came drops of blood, Which covered the earth where the Virgin once stood. The cruel wind blows. Dark was the sky when Angels came to stay, They brought old lanterns to lead the way. The cruel wind blows. Candles brightly shine for all to see, They glow tonight through the ageing year. Tender are the lilies as soft as her gown And white are the ringlets that fall to the ground. Mary with her child upon this Winter night, She walked through the darkness with yellow candle light. North winds blow across the fields, But only one child continues to dream.

The cruel wind blows The cruel wind blows.
