Ring the Bells on Christmas Day
Arranger Jerry Westenkuchler takes three Christmas carols: “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day,” Ding Dong! Merrily on High,” and “Carol of the Bells,” and weaves them together with an original theme. In performing this arrangement, ringers should pay close attention to the dynamic markings. The subito piano in measure 128 should allow for a four-measure crescendo into the grand Coda which resembles tower bells being played with the joy of Christmas season. Begins in the key of C Major, then modulates to F Major for "Ding Dong! Merrily on High", then returns to C major for "Carol of the Bells". 137 measures.
