"Season's Ringings" is the first venture into CDs for the Merrimack Valley Ringers, an auditioned community handbell ensemble. The music was recorded following their final 2006 holiday concert, and mixed and edited in the spring of 2007. The quartet and duet were recorded in a different session. The result is practically a live performance - without the applause! The Merrimack Valley Ringers is an auditioned community handbell ensemble organized in September 2002 with eight ringers. Now in its sixth season, MVR has a roster of fifteen ringers who reside in various areas of Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
