This popular show tune by Rodgers & Hammerstein II first appeared in the musical “The Sound of Music” in 1959. Ironically, the happy lyrics were originally meant to be sung by a woman in the musical in order to reconcile her fear of the unknown. This tune has since become a jazz standard and Christmas song because of it’s wintery depictions. Written for Escape X percussion duo, I decided to take a unique approach and manipulate the traditional meter to have a groovy feel in 5. Additionally, when we perform this tune we incorporate some of Escape X’s favorite things, which include pitched metal bells and almglocken.
