Description

Carol of the Bells, originally written by the Ukranian composer Mykola Leontovych, is one of the most famous pieces of holiday music in existence and was consequently the most famous piece he composed. This particular arrangement by Eric Rath juxtaposes other Christmas carols like God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen and features some modern-day influences like an optional bass guitar and some pop music chord progressions.
