Hi Vass

That's his Prelude in C-Sharp Minor, Op. 3, No. 2.

Re: Classical music, it's a gas

You know, in UFO parlance a siting is "Santa Claus"...and Santa Claus, or Saint Nicolas, may be Father Christmas, in England.

Anyway here's English musician Greg Lake, singing "I believe in Father Christmas"..., one third of Emerson, Lake & Palmer.

and vv--here--vv is an interview, with the same musician, about the song?
