winter wind

I was asked to sing something at a winter themed collection of readings last Christmas, and Sarah suggested I look at Shakespeare's song. There are a couple of choral versions of it online, which didn't really resonate, so I decided to write a melody myself. The words are wonderfully ironic - a very clever song about a friend or lover's betrayal - the chorus is so upbeat, while there's a real bitterness at it's heart. I was looking for something tonally like this for the album - and there it was. So I overcame my worries about including "lyrics by Shakespeare" on the CD and recorded it.
