12 Days of Christmas: Boston Pops Style

It’s after Thanksgiving, so I can officially start listening to Christmas music!  And the Boston Pops have finally put their favorite song of mine onto Youtube!

I’m not normally one for the 12 Days of Christmas.  It’s a tedious song, and honestly, I have no idea how it entered the canon.  But the Boston Pops have an amazing rendition of it, above.  Each day has its own tune.  For instance, Day 5 is played to Beethoven’s 5th, and part of Day 11 is played to Bohemian Rhapsody.  It transforms the piece from barely tolerable to quite entertaining, and whenever I go see the Boston Pops for Christmas, it’s the piece I most look forward to.  I hope you enjoy it!
