I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day


A joyous bell peal leads to the first iteration of the theme before moving into a more flowing verse accompanied by a delicate, malleted obbligato on the high treble bells. An optional dark and dissonant verse (which portrays one of the lesser-known stanzas of the Longfellow poem) gives way to a verse in minor before a triumphant return to major to depict the lyrics Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: "God is not dead, nor doth he sleep ...". An exciting and beautiful addition to your holiday worship or concert.
