Carol of the Bells

ukarine xmas
Carol of the Bells is a choral miniature which was written many moons ago by a Ukrainian composer by the name of Mykola Dmytrovych Lentovych. The basis for the song comes from a traditional folk chant and the language of it was thought to have supernatural powers because of the way it manipulated the number 3. Mykola Dmytrovych Lentovych was murdered in his parents home in 1921 by a man working for Vladamir Lenin's soviet state security. His composition will live on for ages to come. The first video is a version that is a choral arrangement sung by people I cannot name and sounds eerie as I think that it should sound. There is some anime in there for visual stimulation. Also there is George Winston's version done on piano.
