This is the accompanied version as performed by Fred Waring and “The Pennsylvanians.” Repeated drum sounds in the voices form the background for the melody in this Christmas standard that has become a holiday tradition of its own. Add finger cymbals to the drum-like piano accompaniment for the finishing touch, or use the master orchestration by Brant Adams. Also available: iPrint orchestration and StudioTrax CD.
