Ding Dong Merrily On High
An opening peal figure gives way to the theme of the traditional carol, all in 10/8 time. A more standard verse in 4/4 gives way once more to 10/8 as the piece comes in for a raucous conclusion. Unexpected and compelling harmonies abound throughout, giving this old carol a new feeling. It is a great choice for advanced ensembles looking for a chance to work on mixed meter. 63 measures. Key of G Major.
