Christmas Favorites 4 _________ Little Drummer Boy

7 Dec

Love has no Theology.

By playing all these Christmas Carols, I’m sure some people think I’m promoting Christianity.
I’m not. I’m not Christian. I just love a lot of the Christmas music.
It’s beautiful, uplifting and Joyous.

I hope you feel the same way

The Little Drummer Boy

Wikipedia says: “The Little Drummer Boy” (originally known as “Carol of the Drum“) is a popular Christmas song written by the American classical music composer and teacher Katherine Kennicott Davis in 1941. First recorded in 1951 by the Trapp Family Singers, the song was further popularized by a 1958 recording by the Harry Simeone Chorale; the Simeone version was re-released successfully for several years and the song has been recorded many times since.

    I still think of it as “The little drummer boy.” What else do they call it?

      ‘Carol of the Drum’ is an original name. But over the years many of the Carols have had lyric and Name changes.

    This has always been my favorite, no matter what the title is.

      It’s a great song. There are a ton of versions of this song by many different artists. Took me a long time looking through them all … and I never got finished!
