'Blue Christmas' First popularised by Elvis Presley in the mid-50's - it was written and first sung by Ernest Dale Tubb about a decade? before.
'InThe Bleak Midwinter' appeared in The English Hymnal in 1906, though it first appeared in poetry form written by Christina Rossetti, prior 1872.
I used to sing this "hymm" in the juniors assembly school choir.
there are many artists versions….
Currently listening to Siouxsie's "Sea Breezes"
I'm comparing the differencies with Ferry's original version.
I'ts the endings that get to me….
Ferry's melancholic final verse reflection is 'quiet' and in effect perfect, whereas Siouxie sustains the finale' to a fade-out, also perfect. Very male v female oriented i suspect!
