What’s up, dudes? It’s the Feast of St. Stephen, so that means it’s time to talk the 1984 version of “Good King Wenceslas” by Mannheim Steamroller! The melody comes from an ancient Paschal hymn, the text from an Anglican scholar. Synths? Yup. Syncopation? Uh huh. ’80s flair? Definitely! So grab your Rhodes, start playing a Mixolydian riff, and jam out to this episode!
