Tim Minchin’s Storm from 9 Lessons and Carols for Godless People

We’ve all praised Tim Minchin’s Storm at some length which must be heartily annoying for those of you who didn’t attend 9 Lessons and Carols for Godless People. So, as a special treat, here’s a recording and although the sound quality is poor, there is help from the Caption Fairy. See update.

Update: 29 Jan – Tim Minchin has gallantly bowed to piracy and uploaded his own version of Storm as performed at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in December. The musical accompaniment is excellent. We are leaving up the pirate version because the captions might be useful to some people. ETA: For those who need them, Podblack has the lyrics to Storm.

A scholar and a gentleman. Anyone who wants to see Tim Minchin perform should consult his Tour Dates and Gigs page to see if there is one scheduled near to you.
