St. Nicholas Anthem

This round is the Renaissance round entitled "The Bell Doth Toll" and was published in the early 1600's as a part of a collection of rounds. The words talk about the sound of church bells. Our song is about St. Nicholas because the second Sunday of Advent is when we support the church in Palestine and this St. Nick was from the Holy Land.

This is a three-part round, so no difficult divisions: kids start, women take the second part, and men come in third. We'll sing the round in unison and three parts. We'll sing the three verses in unison(kids 1st verse, women 2nd, and men 3rd), then break into a round and sing all three verses three times. Here's how it goes:
Press the play button (little triangle) to start playing the song and the pause button (||) to stop it.
