Robert W. Smith's extremely popular series based on the Ukrainian Bell Carol continues with this setting in an American style. Beginning with a Sousa quote, our "American Bell Carol" continues with a driving rock groove. Mr. Smith has cleverly woven the melody to "America The Beautiful" into the second statement providing a very unique teaching opportunity. Written for middle school to community bands, this will be a favorite for years to come!
