The Twelve days of Christmas in Song – Day 12 concludes with American Trilogy.
The twelfth day of Christmas is finally here.
We also hope you have stayed the course and viewed every day’s offering.
We know that some of you have! We’re grateful for your support and also your kind comments.
Today features the immensely popular American Trilogy.
American Trilogy, a new addition to our repertoire, has certainly become a firm favourite with choristers and audiences.
Perfect Concert Finale
The arrangement for male voice choirs, by Alwyn Humphries, is the perfect finale for any concert. The audience at our recent Gala Concert in St Mary’s Church certainly thought so.
‘An American Trilogy’ is a popular song written by country songwriter Mickey Newbury. In fact, Newbury recorded the song himself and achieved chart success.
As a result, Newbury was eventually inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. The youngest person, as a matter of fact, to receive the honour at the time.
Moreover, the song was recorded by Elvis Presley in 1972. It then became a regular feature in his concert performances.
Of course, a surefire endorsement. Not to mention universal popularity.
From a Christmas Cracker:
What do you call a group of chess players bragging about their games in a hotel lobby?
Chess nuts boasting in an open foyer!
