Song for Advent #19: Little Drummer Boy - The West Wing

O.K. I'm cheating here. Having posted Bowie & Crosby yesterday singing Little Drummer Boy here is another version of the song which I think is used brilliantly in The West Wing T.V. series. The episode is In Excelsis Deo and juxtaposes the West Wing staff listening to a choir singing the song while a military funeral takes place for a homeless war veteran who had been found dead on a park bench. Aaron Sorkin at the height of his powers. My eyes start to leak each time I watch these scenes.
