Originally written by organist Piettro yon in 1917, this ever-popular Christmas theme makes exceedingly nice holiday fare. In this scoring by Art Frackenpohl, everyone makes significant contributions. Muted trumpet passages add essential contrast, and the composition contains a countermelody to the refrain of O Come, All Ye Faithful.
