Silver and Gold

This is my early 1960’s-style arrangement of “Silver and Gold”, which was composed by Johnny Marks for the 1964 TV Christmas special, “Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer”. It was performed by Burk Ives as the voice of Sam the Snowman in the show. Johnny Marks specialized in Christmas songs and wrote many holiday standards, including “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” (a hit for Gene Autry and many others), “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” (a hit for Brenda Lee), “A Holly Jolly Christmas” (Burl Ives), “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day” (Bing Crosby), and “Run Rudolph Run” (recorded by Chuck Berry).
