Ding Dong Merrily on High
The traditional carol is here arranged for SATB and 3 octaves of bells. The vocal parts are meant to be accompanied by bells alone, but the bell part may be played on the keyboard. The "Gloria" section is treated contrapuntally which gives the impression of jubilance that this text proclaims. The bells play throughout except for 16 measures where the "Gloria" section first enters.
