Program Notes

I'll Be Home for Christmas is a Christmas song recorded in 1943 by Bing Crosby, who scored a top-ten hit with the song. The song was written by the lyricist Kim Gannon and composer Walter Kent.

Originally written to honor soldiers overseas in World War II who longed to be home at Christmastime, I'll Be Home for Christmas has since gone on to become a Christmas standard.

- Program Note from Wikipedia

Julie Giroux capitalized on Bing Crosby's relaxed sliding vocal style to fashion an arrangement of I'll Be Home for Christmas around a relaxed slide trombone solo.
