I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day

“I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day” is a Christmas carol based on the 1863 poem “Christmas Bells” by American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. In 1872 the poem was set to music by English organist, John Baptiste Calkin, There is also a 1956 setting by composer Johnny Marks, known for “Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer”.

My recording uses the Calkin setting and is arranged to sound as it might have if performed by the British instrumental group The Shadows.
