I had the good luck to happen upon both of the following songs in a modern Christmas compilation while in the UK in the late 80s. The first is by the boy soprano Aled Jones. In researching this I discovered a minor controversy. The animated clip in the video is from a Christmas show called The Snowman which used Walking In The Air as their theme music. Except the version used in the show was by another boy soprano named Peter Auty. Aled’s version sold very well and I gather that some folks thought it unjust that Peter’s earlier version didn’t. Oh well.
The clip features Aled as a young man accompanying himself as a child. Have a look at their facial expressions and imagine how weird it must feel, especially with Aled perhaps suspecting that he may have achieved his greatest fame as a kid.
Stop the Cavalry might resonate with those who favor a Stop the War theme in their Christmas mix.
