Christmas is coming, it is less than a month till the 24th of December, to be exact. And one of the most popular western Christmas Carol is the "Carol of the Bells", although it is originally from Ukraina, and it does not correspond to the current calendar season of winter. But, anyhow, we like it and like to cover it.
Carol of the Bells" is a popular Christmas carol, composed by Mykola Leontovych with lyrics created Peter J. Wilhousky. The song is based on a folk chant known in Ukrainian as "Shchedryk". Wilhousky's lyrics and the English name are copyrighted, although the original musical composition is not.
It has been arranged many times for different genres, styles of singing and settings and has been covered by artists and groups of many genres: classical, metal, jazz, rock, and pop. The piece has also been featured in films, television shows, and parodies.
