I don’t know whether I could get through the lead-up to Christmas without mentioning The Sound of Music. It’s a classic family musical – with a film version that almost immeasurably improves upon its stage source – and I love it each time I watch it. I also had the good fortune to direct a production of the stage show last year and this was an immensely fulfilling experience. One song from this show in particular seems to have made a crossover as Christmas music and appears most notably on Barbra Streisand’s first Christmas album in a low-key ballad arrangement.
Got a special The Sound of Music memory? Head on down to the comment box.
