Go Tell It On The Mountain – Day 13 of Handbell Advent

Posted By Derek Nance on Dec 13, 2013 |

I’ve been on a jazz kick recently (you’ll see why in the next few days here on the blog) when I ran across this recording posted a couple days ago by the Three Rivers Ringers.  This jazzy rendition of “Go Tell It On the Mountain” is awesome, from the blusey echo damps to the treble riffs.  Any lack of soul this group has is more than made up by the technical skill the group demonstrates, especially with no one missing any of the blues chord changes that make this style of music difficult on bells.  Arranged by William E. Gross, here are the Three Rivers Ringers tearing up “Go Tell It On The Mountain”.
