Now is the time of Winter



 Genre: A Cappella

Soo, still suffering from a bit of a cold, and there are a couple of mic pops near the end which I apologise for, but I still think this is my best version of this yet (and I have been hounded to release an up to date version of this since I performed it live last year...)

(Apologies again - I had to delete the first upload of this since I uploaded the incomplete track!!)

Now is the time of winter,
When ice and snow abound,
And the wind howls cold through the empty trees,
And the frost blankets the ground.

So light a fire ye merry men,
Light and keep it bright
Burning through the darkest hours,
Shining in the night.

The ground outside is growing hard,
Rivers have turned to stone
A single leaf still clings to a branch
Shivering all alone.

The lakes have turned to icy glass,
The sky to a frosty grey,
The wind howls with the wild wolves,
And the night has conquered day.

Amazing that you can sing like this with a cold.
A lot of singers would love to be able to sing that well WITHOUT a cold! Gentle, strange, melancholy, and very different to anything else I've heard. Back with a bang I'd say!
Check out my latest song called Dreamer's Dance.

Haunting performance, Averil (and I mean that in the nicest possible way :-)) You weave the two strands together so nicely. Thanks, Peter.
