Title: Carol of the Bells
Date of request: 2003-11-25
Requested by: Joshua Rey S. Albari
Additional notes: This is arranged by Leontovich and Maggs. Please find one for our christmas carols, please.
- This is NOT a traditional carol. The original music by Leontovich (1877 - 1921) was composed in 1916 and is titled Shchedryk. However, the carol arrangement that everyone knows is by Peter Wilhousky (1902 - 1978), and as it was arranged in 1936 it is still under Copyright! An arrangement with the same music but different words is Ring Christmas Bells (Mykola Leontovich), available at CPDL.
- However, Leontovich's Shchedryk is out of copyright...
