The Little Drummer Boy
By Katherine K. Davis, Henry Onorati and Harry Simeone / arr. Robert D. Vandall
Written in G major, this arrangement features a rhythmic ostinato accompaniment figure in the left hand using blocked fifths and sixths. The right-hand melody is punctuated by occasional interludes of blocked fifths. These intervals are also used in the introduction and short Coda. The lyrics are included.
