Christmas Day - Version 2

Just a couple of changes which I think improve the flow of the tune (apologies to the two people who’ve already downloaded it). These are in bars 4 and 5 of the first part and the last two bars of the turn which are completely re-written as shown in the setting below:-

Christmas Day

Isn’t this the tune against which you can play The Troika from Lieutenant Kijay (not sure of spelling here) as a counter melody?

Christmas Day

As this tune was composed on Christmas Day 2007 it’s highly unlikely that someone has found a counter melody for it already!
