Artist's Description

Created: 2015

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!

E’en so here below, below,
Let steeple bells be swungen,
And “Io, io, io!”
By priest and people sungen.
Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis!

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

Background:

This piece was inspired by watching a choir sing in St Mary’s Church on Holy Island, their singing was beautiful and I sensed that every prayerful note rose like incense (Psalm 141:2).
At Christmas, perhaps more than any other time of year we raise our voices in expectation and joy and the carol I have used in this piece is so joyful and lovely to sing.
May your Christmas be blessed and joyful.
