The Twelve Essential Tracks of Christmas, Day 8: Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops' "Sleigh Ride"

The Twelve Essential Tracks of Christmas, Day 8: Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops' "Sleigh Ride" January 1, 2014

Minus the cloying lyrics, the melody of “Sleigh Ride” is allowed to soar free and take on a life of its own in this definitive arrangement by Arthur Fiedler. While the pitch-perfection of the studio track may be the absolute best take, I also love to watch the orchestra at work in this clip. John Williams conducting doesn’t hurt either! Enjoy. Oh yes, and Happy New Year!
