Carol of the Bells - Tuesday Tune, vol 104


Today's Tuesday Tune is 1460 swear words in the making, in as many days.  It's also one of those tunes that many might refer to as a "banner moment" or "the light at the end of the tunnel" or even "the day that Rabid never thought would come."

Carol of the Bells is a Ukrainian Christmas carol based on local Ukrainian folklore.  As the story goes, a swallow would fly into a house and proclaim bounty and blessings to all.  I suppose the tune is meant to mimic that of swallows flitting and flying about.

This Carol of the Bells tune is an altogether fitting arrangement for Yahoo and my's first duet.  Mostly because I feel like that same pesky swallow.  Except for swooping in and proclaiming bounty and blessings, I swoop in a holler "GET IN THERE AND PRACTICE THE PIANO!"
