Mykola Leontovych died in 1921 so that means the choral setting of the folk song would be public domain by now, wouldn't it? If you have trouble finding a transcription at least now the music is old enough that you could tackle an arranging project.

I think that this Ukrainian carol sounds wonderful set in d minor with drop D tuning. It lets you thrash out some very loud sections and then quiet everything down.

In Chris Parkening's Guitar Method Vol 2 there is a nice, but simple arrangement by David Brandon. (I say "simple," because if I can play it, it is simple :bravo: )

I'm starting work on a collection of pieces to perform this coming holiday season. Carol of the Bells is top on my list. It's terribly cool to discover that I already have the music in Chris Parkening's books.
