Merry Christmas! I'm sure most conductors have had just about enough of the standard holiday fare so I'd like to serve you up something quite different. Moon Man has an unusual text that Greg Bartholomew adapted from a poem by American poet Tom Clarke. This song will have you eating your Moon Man cheese in a tin for Christmas Day. Enjoy!
