THE FOURTH TUNE OF CHRISTMAS


"Do You Hear What I Hear?" was written by Noel Regney and Gloria Shayne in 1962 and was a plea for peace during the Cuban missile crisis. This song has been recorded by many different artists over the years but my favorite is by Whitney Houston. She was in her prime, delivered a stirring and passionate vocal plus the song has a great arrangement.

Her version was made as part of a 1987 Christmas themed album,  "A Very Special Christmas". It assembled other popular musical artists of the day and the proceeds went to benefit the Special Olympics. There have been seven other albums released in the series.
