Countdown to publication - 1 day to go

It wouldn't be Christmas without Raymond Briggs' The Snowman appearing in the TV schedules at some point during the festive season. And the most memorable piece of music from it is Walking in the Air, sung by Aled Jones - right?

Wrong! Aled Jones made the song famous after he recorded it for a subsequent single release. The record reached number five in the UK pop charts, and Jones became a celebrity off the back of it.

However, for the TV programme, Walking in the Air was actually sung by St. Paul's Cathedral choirboy Peter Auty who is still singing but now as an operatic tenor. You can remind yourself of Peter's performance again by clicking on the video clip below.
