This is Carol of the Bells as you’ve never experienced it. Rick Dior takes creative liberties with the renowned Christmas carol, giving it a completely different character that will spice up your holiday repertoire.

This percussion ensemble arrangement for 10 players contains aspects of African and Brazilian drumming along with some inventive odd-metered treatments to the mallet choir and even a crash cymbal quartet! With ample room for improvisation and crowd participation, Peril of the Bells is perfect for directors who want creativity with their Christmas.
