I'm Dreaming of a Tuba Christmas
At the sound of the horns
I came running
like a call in the blood
From the somber "O Come, O Come, Emmanuel" to the serene "Silent Night", there is nothing quite like a tuba Christmas. The bass instrument of my youth takes enough of the saccharine as well as the overly familiar out of the songs, making them sound newly sublime.

Kudos to innskeeper John for the reminder.
