Carol of the Bells
One of many arrangements of this favorite carol, this one has some intriguing differences. It begins slowly and simply, thickens and grows to a fortissimo grand pause. The remaining variations of the repetitious melody are fast and challenging, with contrasting patterns that are inventive and very entertaining. The textures thicken and the drama increases to a grand and glorious finish. Arranged in c minor and a minor, this piece is 106 measures.
