Month: December 2022

Carol of the Bells

A rather too ambitious attempt at transcribing this carol to melodeon; I’ve listened to a few versions, and come to the conclusion that after the 2 main themes, people just break off into wild improvisation. I don’t do wild, but here we go. theme of the month for December 2022.

For info, it was written by Ukrainian composer Mykola Leontovych in 1914.

Played on a Van der Aa Compact III in G/C

The tune of a carol written in 1871 by John Goss. We’re doing’s usual Christmas theme of the month, and this is a lovely carol. There are words of course to the real thing, written by Henry Ramsden Bramley and John Stainer, but I’m not singing!

Mrs Casey’s’s tune of the month for December 2022; this is apparently a more widely known version than the one I’ve known for past 20+ years – I’ve been completely oblivious to it!

Here we go, nice minor twinge to it, played on a Bb/Eb Hohner Pokerwork.
