    Even though I didn't recognize it right away, hearing it played on a console organ,
    this is a song I grew up singing in the choir for the Scottish church my parents were founding members of.
    Yes, that's a Christ Mass thought. I remember going wild with the harmonies on this one.

    Sleigh Ride, a Christmas song from a movie is one of those songs I sing to myself the most,
    jamming it up like a trumpet player would do it, probably up there in my top five of songs I sing to myself.
    This organ virtuoso should have dressed in green,
    and then he would have looked like one of Santas' elves making a magical musical gift for us all.
    My gift here for you, wljmrbill, is me keeping this short, making it easy to unwrap this music.
