    ...and then she asked:

    Where is the game post? where?? :P

    Well, I have to tell you, I deleted it when it was just halfway written here... The post that had to come as a "game post" was deleted as I didn't like it. I recorded this same piece, Carol of the Bells, yesterday evening, and it was not the thing. I saw the image blurry... made it even worse by converting it into monochrome video. Had some missed notes while playing and didn't like some parts I added... I found myself in a free-falling mode towards not so positive overall state that usually happens before the Christmas holidays and the delete worked perfectly to forget the whole thing. The sky hasn't seemed any brighter this morning either, but eventually, I recorded again the piece and this time it will not be eliminated. This time the bells are coming to the stage, performed by these ten fingers I have got. Well, the mind also has something to do with the thing, as I heavily changed the song.

    The song Carol of the Bells has a story that is not so simple. The original one is written by the composer Mykola Leontovych in 1916, upon a Ukrainian folk chant Shchedryk. He arranged that folk chant for a cappella mixed four-voice choir. Two decades later, Peter J. Wilhousky rearranged this beautiful melody for the orchestra and with new lyrics, and the song became associated with Christmas. This tune has been featured in some movies and an incredible number of arrangements and covers appeared since it was published back in time. (around 150 different versions). As I mentioned in the previous paragraph, I also played it differently than the base score I got, I added my new parts and took off parts from the song, changed the structure and text of it.. so we are adding one more cover, hive exclusive cover.

    Where the game part??

    So, as I promised @ewkaw, there will be a guessing game post, soon. Well, Friday is when the promised post would have to come to this FUNNY new place and with a different topic - mushroom theme, but I also like to play in my music posts. My only concern is if the question should be easy or a more complicated one...? Well, let's go with something that everyone can find the answer to if enough curios:

    What is the original Ukrainian folk song about, and which animal is mentioned in that song?

    Have fun searching for the answer, and if you like, you can listen in the meantime how this mipiano version of Carol of the Bells sounds :)
