Carol of the Bells is also known as the "Ukraine Carol" or as "Ring Christmas Bells". The tune is based onan ancient Ukraine pagan chant known as "Shchedryk", which is used as an ostinato 4 note melody pattern within the range of a minor 3rd.

It is of prehistoric origins and was associated with the coming new year.

Also arranged for various other quartet ensebles. Please see my homepage for further details.
