Christmas Playlist: "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers"

Orchestra music has always been a major part of my world, and some of my favorite recordings are those done by the Boston Pops directed by Arthur Fiedler. So not surprising, the Christmas music done by them are also among my favorites. While there are many selections I could pick, I finally settled on "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers" today, because I (being a speculative writer) love the fancifulness of the original song, and this playful arrangement captures well the whimsy of the song's lyrics.
