Monty Python – Pantomime Horses

I was asked for help finding a recording of this 5-bar wonder, for use at the 2018 London Pantomime Horse Race charity event on 16 December. The tune features, to the point of ridiculousness, in the Monty Python’s Flying Circus Pantomime Horses sketch.

I’ve no idea the true name for this jingle and was unable to find any trace of it anywhere, so with no apparent alternatives I recorded it myself as a one-man-band. Six parts plus the first two doubled. The faux tuba and trombone tracks (played on flugelhorn and slide trumpet respectively) were dropped an octave thanks to digital effects on my mixer. My understanding is that this recording is expected to be played ad nauseam at the London event.

I can’t imagine anyone will ever need or want this ever again. But someone did once, so here it is just in case history ever repeats itself.
