Even More Bell Ringers

Even I can't keep track of what I've shared and what I haven't.  I discovered yet another LP full of handbell music in the archives.  What is this, number four?  I had no idea!  This stuff is great, I hope you appreciate it.  I shared this back in 2011 and I re-encoded it just last might for maximum listening pleasure. This is Del Roper With The Mason Swiss Bell Ringers-I Heard The Bells... (Word W 3067-LP, Mono, 1959).

1. Jingle Bells and White Christmas
2. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
3. Carol Of The Bells
4. We Three Kings
5. Gesu, Bambino
6. Joy To The World
7. I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day
8. O Holy Night (Cantique De Noel)
9. The First Noel
10. Silent Night
11. O Little Town Of Bethlehem
12. O Come, All ye Faithful (Adeste Fidelis)

Please Ernie two requests:
"Greatest Songs of Christmas" by John McCarthy Chorale
"O Bambino - The Little Drummer Boy" by The Harry Simeone Chorale (on Kapp Records) last track "Sing Of A Merry Christmas" is missing on cd version.

Thank you Ernie. Love these bells.

Pretty sure the John McCarthy LP you are looking for is a reissue of his earlier LP.

There's a working link to the John McCarthy album at our post from 2016.

Can't get enough of these bells. They create such a great ambiance. I have been streaming them on low volume to a couple of bluetooth speakers outside my home.

Thanks so much for John McCarthy and for your wonderful work!!!
(Harry Simeone "Sing Of A Merry Christmas" will it remain a dream?)

I adore bell ringers so thank you very much for this album (& yes, I'm running really, really late in downloading all these wonderful shares, which means my family is just going to have to deal with me listening to Christmas music all winter =D).

Thank you very much for sharing Ernie!
