Scored for six percussionists, this arrangement of the holiday classic Carol of the Bells sizzles! After a short tambourine introduction, the mallet parts kick in with the melody. Each percussionist gets to play more than one instrument including the mallet players. Passages of intense drumming mix in with the melody throughout the piece, and it ends with a statement of the familiar ostinato. If you're looking for a fresh setting of an old favorite, you've found it!
