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. This is the perfect compliment to any holiday themed concert where the percussion section can take center stage! This arrangement of Carol of the Bells was premiered on December 13, 2016 by the Canyon High School Percussion Ensemble in Canyon, Texas.
