Here's what I found in wikipedia:
"Carol of the Bells" (also known as the "Ukrainian Bell Carol") is a choral miniature work originally composed by the Ukrainian composer Mykola Dmytrovych Leontovych. Throughout the composition, Leontovych used a four note motif as an ostinato which was taken from an ancient pagan Ukrainian New Year's chant known in Ukrainian as "Shchedryk" [the Generous One]. The composer created the piece as an assignment in the application for the use of an ostinato for a harmony course he was studying by correspondence. The original work was intended to be sung a cappella by mixed choir.
Das Hauptthema erinnert mich schwer an "Kevin allein zu haus" wenn er in New York ganz alleine sich auf die Gangster vorbereitet =) Sehr sehr gut,.
