A Contemporary Christmas Carol, Set in a Traditional Style

Additional Information

Ring Out, Ye Bells!  is a Christmas Carol scored for SATB a cappella choir and is based on the text: Christmas Carol by Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906).
The work is written in a traditional style (with just an ever so slight nod to 'O Come, all Ye Faithful' in the intro). It is a very commercial and tuneful piece scored at an intermediate performer’s level.
After the short tutti introduction, the main theme is presented solely by unison sopranos, the carol then builds gradually into a full harmonic structure with occasional divisions in some of the voices. This mp3 audio recording is a piano version to aid with rehearsals (only).
Rehearsals with a full choir are to be scheduled later in 2022 and a video recording will be complete and available in December.

Thank you for showing an interest in this music.
Best Wishes,
Stephen.
