Please let me know if you perform any of my works,send me a recording if you can. The mp3 file is "sung" by Voices of Prague sampled choir, this gives an impression of the sound.

Ding, dong! Merrily on high
Author : George Ratcliffe Woodward

Ding, dong! Merrily on high
In heav'n the bells are ringing
Ding, dong! Verily the sky
Is riv'n with angel singing
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis.
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis.

E'en so here below, below
Let steeple bells be swungen
And eeo, eeo, eeo
By priest and people sungen
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis.
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis.

Pray ye dutifully prime
Your matin chime, ye ringers
May ye beautifully rime
Your evetime song, ye singers
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis.
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis.
