If you've been looking for a fresh, playful holiday song to put a big smile on everyone's face, look no further! This forgotten classic from the late 1950s is big, bright, brassy and sassy, with the melody shared by all four voice parts, and even a section where the group becomes a (vocal) brass band.

    To come across a holiday song this great that's from fifty years ago that somehow isn't universally known. I already can tell this is going to be an ongoing classic for my choir, requested year after year. Great sense of style and humor in the musical choices within...
