Robert W. Smith's continues his very popular bell carol series with this holiday stop in beautiful Ireland. Celtic Bell Carol begins with the saxophone and flute evoking mysterious images of Celtic dancers as they prepare for their holiday celebration. The percussion section is featured throughout with infectious Irish rhythms added to the famous Ukrainian Bell Carol. This exciting setting will be the centerpiece or finale of your next holiday concert. Highly recommended!
