Sleigh Ride: Mormon Tabernacle Choir

The song “Sleigh Ride” was envisioned ironically by Leroy Anderson during a heat wave in July 1946; he finished the work in February 1948. The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) named “Sleigh Ride” the most popular piece of Christmas music in the USA for four consecutive years from 2009 through 2012. According to Wiki, to this day, Leroy Anderson’s recording remains the most popular instrumental version, while Johnny Mathis‘ recording has become the most popular vocal version. Here is a MoTab performance, arranged by Sir Arthur Harris.
