"Ukranian Bells" (also called "Carol of the Bells") is a choral miniature work composed by the Ukrainian Mykola Leontovych. Leontovych's composition, is characterised by the use of a four note motif as an ostinato figure throughout the work. This ostinato figure is an ancient pagan Ukrainian New Year's (originally celebrated in April) magical chant known in Ukrainian as "Shchedryk" [the Generous One].
I developed this Handbell and Piano arrangement as a less complex alternative to my "http://musescore.com/user/13216/scores/30877" for use by by family in a small performance setting.
