Carol of the Bells is a song that has been a favorite of mine for many years. I’ve sort of been known for
performing it around Christmas time as well, and so when I was writing music for my “Winter
Symphony” album, I knew I wanted to include this song.
I wanted it to be a very cinematic version of the music, and so it’s with great pride that this music video
turned out as beautiful as it did – because I feel that it fits the music so well.
This music video features the beautiful and talented 16 year old Carolynne May Guinup as the ballerina.
She endured some very cold weather dancing through the forest of the Olympic Peninsula in
Washington in the month of November. Give her a thumbs up for that! d And YES, we did haul a real
antique grand piano into the forest as well! Someone asked if it was “photoshopped”. No, indeed not.

1. Have you heard the sound of the angel voices ringing out so sweetly, ringing out so clear? Have you seen the star shining out so brightly as a sign from God that Christ the Lord is here? Have you heard the news that they bring from heaven to the humble shepherds who have waited long? Gloria in excelsis Deo! Gloria in excelsis Deo! Hear the angels sing their joyful song.
2. He is come in peace in the winter’s stillness, like a gentle snowfall in the gentle night. He is come in joy, like the sun at morning, filling all the world with radiance and with light. He is come in love as the child of Mary. In a simple stable we have seen his birth. Gloria in excelsis Deo! Gloria in excelsis Deo! Hear the angels singing ‘Peace on earth’.
3. He will bring new light to a world in darkness, like a bright star shining in the skies above. He will bring new hope to the waiting nations, when he comes to reign in purity and love. Let the earth rejoice at the Saviour’s coming. Let the heavens answer with a joyful morn: Gloria in excelsis Deo! Gloria in excelsis Deo! ||: Hear the angels singing, ‘Christ is born’. :|| …. …
John Milford Rutter CBE (born September 24, 1945(1945-09-24)) is an English composer, choral conductor, editor, arranger and record producer.
Born in London, he was educated at Highgate School, where a fellow pupil was John Tavener. He then read music at Clare College, Cambridge, where he was a member of the choir and then director of music from 1975 to 1979. In 1974, Rutter visited the United States at the invitation of choral musician Melvin (Mel) Olson and conducted the premiere of his cantata “Gloria” in Omaha, Nebraska, in the Witherspoon Hall of Joslyn Art Museum. The composition, commissioned by Olson’s Voices of Mel Olson chorale, has become a much-performed favorite over the years. (In the same concert, the Young People’s Choir of the Midlands performed Rutter’s “Eight Childhood Lyrics” in its US premiere performance.) In 1981 he founded his own choir, the Cambridge Singers, which he conducts and with which he has made many recordings of sacred choral repertoire (including his own works), particularly under his own label Collegium Records. He still lives near Cambridge, but frequently conducts other choirs and orchestras around the world.
In 1980 he was made an honorary Fellow of Westminster Choir College, Princeton, and in 1988 a Fellow of the Guild of Church Musicians. In 1996 the Archbishop of Canterbury conferred a Lambeth Doctorate of Music upon him in recognition of his contribution to church music.
He also works as an arranger and editor, most notably (in his youth) of the extraordinarily successful Carols for Choirs anthology series in collaboration with Sir David Willcocks.”Despite composing and conducting much religious music, Rutter told the US television program 60 Minutes in 2003 that he was not particularly a religious man, but he is inspired by the spirituality of sacred verses and prayers. The 60 Minutes program, which aired a week before Christmas 2003, focused on Rutter’s popularity with choral groups in the United States, Britain and other parts of the world, and on his composition, Mass of the Children, composed after the sudden, tragic death of his son Christopher, a student.
Rutter’s music is very popular, particularly in the USA (NBC’s Today Show called him “the world’s greatest living composer and conductor of choral music”); though in the UK it receives a more mixed reception. Some from the Anglican choral tradition do not regard him as a sufficiently “serious” composer. There is still great appreciation for his work in many parts of the UK, however, as illustrated by the following quotation from a review in the London Evening Standard (25/09/2005): “For the infectiousness of his melodic invention and consummate craftsmanship, Rutter has few peers.”–Wikipedia
In terms of performances he is probably the most successful choral composer of his generation. For example, his Shepherd’s Pipe Carol, written while he was still at school, is reputed to have sold well over one million copies in sheet music alone.
The song in Spanish Noche de paz, one of the most popular Christmas carols in Spanish, where they’re known as villancicos.

“I love these two carols (Carol of the Bells/God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen) – they were made for each other — they both capture the excitement of the Christmas Season. I have three children that just get giddy during December — excited each morning as they get closer and closer to Christmas Day. That excitement is so contagious. I love it. It’s the kind of energy and eagerness that keeps you up at night. I wanted to capture that joy and anticipation in this arrangement.
People have told me that this reminds them of the Pirates of the Caribbean. Maybe one year the Pirates franchise will make a Christmas special and THIS could be the theme song! Instead of Carol of the Bells it could be titled ‘Jack Sparrow of the Bells.’ =)”

For my fellow music geeks =) my favorite part of writing this arrangement is the obligatory hemiola due to the meter difference between the two songs — one is 3/4 and the other 4/4. I hope you like the way they collide. My second favorite part is the intense canon at the end that creates a cluster-chord feel and dissonant coda finally resolving with the main theme of BOTH tunes.
