Song of the Day #1898

Song of the Day: Ben-Hur / King of Kings (“A Christmas Sequence”) [YouTube link], composed by Miklos Rozsa, arranged by Christopher Palmer, is a lovely ‘mash-up’ of the music from two of Rozsa’s film score masterpieces: “Ben-Hur” (1959) and “King of Kings” (1961). It takes the cues related to the birth of Christ from both films and presents us with an inspirational thematic celebration of peace on earth, goodwill to all. The sequence is conducted by George Fenton, and performed by the BBC Concert Orchestra and the London Choral Society. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night! (And it’s my Greek Name Day too! Yay!)
