Süsser die Glocken nie klingen (the bells never sound sweeter) for brass quartet



Traditional German Christmas carol (based on a Thuringian melody “Seht wie die Sonne dort sinket” from around 1808),
originally arranged for choir and now recreated for instrumental quartet.
The melody moves through the parts while the other parts represent the ringing of the bells –
with a few added cheeky English cadences.
