I am a member of Kaleidos Ladies Choir and Sally is our wonderfully talented pianist. She plays for us on Monday morning practices and also for the many concerts we perform throughout the year. In December 2017, we were delighted when Sally introduced us to one of her latest compositions - 'Can you Hear Christmas Bells Ring?' We immediately loved it and it was, of course, included in our Christmas concert that year - much to the pleasure of our audience.
A year later, our musical director Gabby Hanley asked the choir which carols we would like to sing in our 2018 Christmas concert. Unanimously, we shouted "Sally's carol"! It was a great hit once again with our audience and ... I'm not surprised. The carol has a beautiful melody which is very catchy and a joy to sing. It perfectly captures the spirit of the Christmas story in its verses and chorus and the words are beautifully crafted - sung in three parts.
We very much look forward to singing it again in 2019.
Thank you Sally for all you do and for this lovely carol which is my absolute favourite.
What a delight and pleasure it is to listen to Sally playing the piano every Monday morning during our choir practise where her sunny smile transcends into her playing. She listens and encourages and even writes original songs. I would particularly like to congratulate her on 'Can you hear Christmas Bells Ring?' The melody of this carol is delightful and its simplicity is genius at re-telling the Christmas message.
Sally Kee's "Can You Hear Christmas Bells Ring?" is a beautifully melodic new carol that has become a firm favourite, not only with Kaleidos SSA Choir but also with our audience, and we were lucky enough to give it its first Christmas performance. Sally's inspirational arrangement of her charming melody is a delight to sing. If you are looking for an original carol for your SSA choir, I can thoroughly recommend you try Sally's "Can You Hear Christmas Bells Ring?".
