Claude Thornhill: Snowfall

One of my father's favorite songs. It may not fit for the first of summer, but we've been getting nothing but rainfall. It also fits the nuclear fallout thread of duck and cover.
About Claude Thornhill from a previous post
SNOWFALL, the band's gorgeous theme, written and arranged by Claude, is in many ways its most memorable piece of music. This is an especially subdued rendition, with the usual brilliant brass release played an octave lower and into mutes; As Bill Borden points out, "This is the version we used to close our programs."
