And The Tubular Bells Were Ringing Out For Christmas Day

English musician, composer and sometimes popstar Mike Oldfield is best renowned for 'Tubular Bells' but despite what you might think the instrumental is neither about nor does it sound like Christmas. As if to underline this point it actually featured heavily on the Exorcist movie. Oldfield does have Christmas form though and it came very early in his career. 1975's 'In Dulci Jubilo' was only Oldfield's second ever single release and achieved chart success in lots of different territories. 'In Dulci Jubilo' is an jaunty instrumental cover of an old Christmas carol called 'Good Christian Men Rejoice' but its place amongst the elite of Christmas songs remains a mystery given the quality of the stuff that hasn't achieved that honour. For all that Oldfied certainly recreated an old world theme with several woodwind instruments holding sway amongst the more modern day instrumental sections (the guitars are particularly prominent in places). The peculiar spoken word 'On Horseback' appeared on the b-side of the single and although it mentioned snow it was way too odd to ever become a cherishable Christmas chestnut.
