William Price King put this series together for Christmas 2015 and I thought that I would share again to the new readers who have joined the blog since then. For those of you who enjoyed the music the first time around.. I hope you will enjoy again..
Today we are featuring probably one of the most recorded songs for the festive season.
The Little Drummer Boy began life in the early 40s as Carol of the Drum and was written by American classical composer and teacher Katherine Kennicott Davis. She had based the version on a traditional Czech carol with unknown origins and originally Katherine composed the piece specifically for girl’s choirs.
