    Hello folks..

    I think I found my new favourite Christmas song…”The Little Bell”.
    I would love to hear it sung in English although in Russian it still has a powerful emotion and captures one, entranced, until the last note.
    I found this originally on Youtube but have been unable to download a copy from anywhere.
    Thank you for putting it out there for the world to listen to these beautiful voices.

    I think I have found a translation. It reads:

    “The little Bell lies on the Ground. / Although it tries it cannot sound. / It used to ring across the air. / It sweetened tone would linger there.”

    Am I right. Certainly the words match the melancholy of the music, or?
    Like Alan I thank you for posting the song. Are there other pieces similar to this one?

      The following are the lyrics

      КОЛОКОЛЬЧИК

      ОДНОЗВУЧНО ГРЕМИТ КОЛОКОЛЬЧИК
      И ДОРОГА ПЫЛИТСЯ СЛЕГКА
      И УНЫЛО ПО РОВНОМУ ПОЛЮ
      РАЗЛИВАЕТСЯ ПЕСНЬ ЯМЩИКА

      СТОЛЬКО ГРУСТИ В ТОЙ ПЕСНЕ УНЫЛОЙ
      СТОЛЬКО ЧУСМВО В НАПЕВЕ РОДНОМ
      ЧТО В ДУШЕ МОЕЙ ХЛАДНОЙ, ОСТЫЛОЙ
      РАЗГОРЕЛОСЯ СЕРДЦЕ ОГНЁМ

      И ПРИПОМНИЛ Я НОЧИ ДРУГИЕ
      И РОДНЫЕ ПОЛЯ, И ЛЕСА,
      И НА ОЧИ ДАВНО УЖ СУХИЕ,
      НАБЕЖАЛА, КАК ИСКРА, СЛЕЗА.

      ОДНОЗВУЧНО ГРЕМИТ КОЛОКОЛЬЧИК
      И ДОРОГА ПЫЛИТСЯ СЛЕГКА
      И ЗАМОЛК МОЙ ЯМЩИК, А ДОРОГА
      ПРЕДО МНОЙ ДАЛЕКА, ДАЛЕКА……..

    This is the closest to heaven I have ever been thankyou so much for posting. Some further English translation…poetic.. would be wonderful but i am prepared to have my student learn the Russian version.Beautiful voices , Alexander Ilyich Albataev should be world famous. Maybe he is.
