First of all, the full title of this piece is "Variations on a Christmas Carol" which is a bit too long to add as a title here on NG.
Okay, so this piece consists of variations on the Christmas Carol "Carol of the Bells" by Leontovych for a large brass choir. There are several ideas presented through the piece about Church Bells. They are:
-The power and grandness of the bells
-The echoes of the bells in a town
-The distant presence of the bells from afar
-The off-synchronization of the bells
-The mechanics of a bell tower
The main idea, though, is the power of Church Bells. Even though I may be Jewish, I find the presence of giant golden bells to be awe inspiring.
Please enjoy the music and remember to vote and review!
