I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
for SSA chorus

3:00
“I Heard The Bells on Christmas Day” possesses an invigorating yet subtle rhythmic vitality achieved through masterful juxtaposition of simple and compound meters as well as a preponderance of witty voice-crossings."
— Sean Burton, Choral Journal

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day was commissioned by Carole Thibodeaux for the San Francisco Girls Chorus. It was premiered December 2003 in Lafayette, CA. The text is taken from a poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
