Men Much Missed – Mrrs. Carl Palmer, Keith Emerson “Father Christmas” declassified tempo diagram

“I Believe In Father Christmas,” that song also made it to #2. The part at the end is based on “Lieutenant Kije Suite” by Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev.

Of all the attempts at fitting Russian classical music into a popular sing, as Sting’s use of Prokofiev in RUSSIANS, no song is as sweet to my ear as Emerson Lake & Palmer’s adaption in Father Christmas: Like “I Believe In Father Christmas,” that song also made it to #2. The part at the end is based on “Lieutenant Kije Suite” by Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev.
