Carol of the Bells Piano Sheet Music

Well it’s Christmas time and I don’t know if you celebrate it but in the holiday season I decided to upload Carol of the Bells piano sheet music. Just in case you are feeling in the mood to play some piano on a cold winter day with a hot cup of cocoa by your side. Just some nice, ethereal music to warm up your home and bring in the Christmas spirit. But even if it’s not the holidays this song is still a wonderful piece to play.

Carol of the Bells is a popular Christmas carol written by Mykola Leontovych with lyrics by Peter J. Wilhousky. There have been many variations since then and even some to this day. The song is based on a traditional Ukrainian folk chant and has since become associated with the coming New Year and the sheet music is most famous for its repeating four note ostinato motif. It can now be found almost everywhere you go and has become a ubiquitous Christmas song. It is rare to find a person who hasn’t heard this song yet but what’s ironic is most people that know it don’t even know what it’s called!

This version of Carol of the Bells piano sheet music is one of few Christmas songs I can actually tolerate. It sounds fanciful yet beautiful without being overbearing if played multiple times. Not like your head-splitting Jingle Bells and others like it. The George Winston version is an alternate cover that you should check out. Definitely worth a listen and if you’re interested you can buy the official sheet music here. The sheet music available here is an earlier version that is not too hard to play. Recommended for intermediate pianists.
