Holmes Street Publishing
HSP1034, SATB, $2.25
2016

The classic “Carol of the Bells” is given a fresh and contemporary twist by Isaac Cates. The initial statement delights with equal parts homophonic and polyphonic writing, underscored by a delicate yet powerful piano accompaniment. The ending is where Cates' true genius shines. He showcases the choral singers in an unaccompanied SATB divisi section where all nine voice parts are added layer by layer to create an amazing tapestry of bell-like sounds… all with a soulful edge. Precluded by vocal pyramids built on quartal harmony, the piece ends on a single unison note, replicating the tolling bell as it dies away. This is perfect for your holiday concert!
