A little (more) Christmas music

An instrumental version of "Walking In The Air" from The Snowman, a British animated TV flick that amounts to a kinda-sorta Limey appropriation of our own beloved Frosty. The movie is something of an oddball; for one thing, there's nary a word of dialogue other than the lyrics to the with-vocals version of this tune. Likewise, "Walking In The Air" is a departure from the usual cheery, upbeat Christmas-music fare: somber, delicate, and haunting. "Deck The Halls" it ain't. But I really like it just the same. Try it on for size and see if it fits ya.

There's another solo-piano version here which includes some clips from the movie, if you're interested in that.
