The original Ukrainian version of the world-famous "Carol of the Bells," translated to English in the 1920s by Peter Wilhousky from Leontovich's simple, yet artfully crafted arrangement. Similar to English "wassail" songs, the text of this traditional caroling song wishes the master of the house wealth, prosperity, healthy farm animals, and a beautiful wife!
