I sing in a choral club which is sponsored by Travelers Insurance, in Hartford, Connecticut. It is the oldest company sponsored choral club in the country. This Christmas we are doing a piece called Christmas Bells, which is a Norwegian Folk Carol. I am wondering if you posted the lyrics and midi of this piece someone might recognize it and provide the Norwegian words to it. I have no idea if the English words are a translation of the original or the lyricist just came up with words that matched the tune. The tune however, is quite nice and would be a very good children’s song.
Here are the lyrics Ed sent me:
Christmas is coming and sleigh bells are jingling and
Faces are tingling in frost and in snow
Riding along with the reindeer together in
Cold frosty weather we sing as we go.
See! The lights of the home are glowing;
Warmth and welcome clear they’re showing.
Journey’s end comes soon in sight, with the sleigh bells
A jingle in the bright starry night.
If anyone can help with the Norwegian lyrics to this song, please comment below or email me.
