Today the whole world knows Carol of the Bells (originally «Shchedryk»), masterfully arranged by the skilled hand of a brilliant Ukrainian Master Mykola Leontovych. The song is based on a traditional folk New Year’s chant, which tells a story of a swallow flying into a household to sing of wealth that will come with the spring. Since the song dates back to pagan times, I’ve decided to create this cover with the sopilka – a traditional Ukrainian folk wind instrument.
