Carol of the Bells, also known as the Ukrainian Bell Carol, was composed by Mykola Dmytrovych Leontovych, and is based on the Ukrainian New Years chant "Shchedryk". The work was first performed in December 1916 by students at Kiev University. The English lyrics were written by Peter Wilhousky of NBC Radio in 1936. The piece reminded Wilhousky of ringing bells, which he captured in the imagery in his lyrics.
