If it is at all possible to imagine Santa Claus marching to perform his delivery duties and not as tradition expects to be driving a reindeer powered sleigh then this obscure march fits the bill perfectly. A bright and jolly piece, somewhat reminiscent of Alpine or Bavarian "Tafelmusik", not particularly demanding and as such ideal for beginners and makes an unusual addition to a Christmas programme . Astonishingly for such a forgotten piece, Adam Burford wrote a wierd string arrangement of Santa Claus for the Garritan Orchestral Strings (a prestigious studio organisation that produces background music for stage, film and TV-series amongst which would you believe is - Sex and the City). For my taste (biased of course!) it sounds best either as a piano work as composed or indeed as this recorder adaptation.
Santa Claus was published by the Sam Fox Pub. Co., Cleveland, Ohio, USA.
A tempo of 190 crotchets/min. is suggested.
