Ding-a Ding-a Ding by Greg Gilpin. For Choral (SSAA A Cappella). Shawnee Press. Choral. 16 pages. Shawnee Press #B0639. Published by Shawnee Press (HL.35005341).
Bells are associated with the holiday season as well as celebratory and inspirational tributes and events. This song will be your favorite choral imitating the ring and sound of bells. Polyphonic and homophonic sections play off each other and add to the diverse sound. An optional section allows two choirs to sing together in both musical styles. Simplistic singing builds to majestic singing, then fades away like bells in a steeple chiming in falling snow. Now two-part ensembles can enjoy this memorable choral with an optional piano accompaniment. What cannot be sung by the two voices is now provided by the piano accompaniment. However, if used as an a cappella piece, the flavor and excitement are still there for the singers and audience. A wonderful addition for your treble library! Available separately: SATB, unaccompanied; SSAA, unaccompanied, SSAB, unaccompanied; 2-part, accompanied.
