Ding, Dong, Merrily On High

(1 customer review)


This joyful Christmas carol is arranged here as a late intermediate to early advanced piano solo. It begins with a recurring theme of treble chords tinkling like ringing bells while the melismatic “Gloria” passage sings beneath. The traditional energetic verse and refrain are repeated several times and carried through melodic variations, unique chord progressions, and modulations before coming to a jubilant conclusion. This arrangement is perfect as a showy, yet time-sensitive Christmas performance piece. (Performance length: less than 3 minutes.)

    My two students who learned this last year LOVED it. One recognized it from Little Women, the older movie. Its delightful, jingly bells make it fun to play, and keeping the rhythm is the challenge. So fun.
