Notes

"Inspired by Sting's favourite season, If On A Winter's Night… takestraditional music from th British Isles as its starting point and evolves into a compelling and personal journey with music spanning over five centuries (including two Sting's own songs).
An evocative collection of lullabies, carols and songs, Sting's new album celebrates the many facets of winter - before the snows melt and the cycle of the seasons begin once more."
