Sleigh Ride Party

£45.00

  • The Greater New York Quartette
  • Columbia Brown Wax Cylinder 9040, 1898
  • 2 minutes

 

This is a delightful Christmas sketch which includes that old favourite, Jingle Bells, as the company take a sleigh ride to the local hostelry.

Jingle Bells was written by James Lord Pierrepont in 1850 and had already become a popular favourite by the time this cylinder was recorded.  It includes the lesser known second verse, the words of which are included here:

A day or two ago
I thought I’d take a ride
And soon, Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side,
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot
He got into a drifted bank
And then we got upsot.
