Carol of the Bells appears in several publications and is also a pretty easy tune to teach by rote as well. The kids love it! Our seventh graders did it this year and we could not get them to stop! it combines an ostinato pattern with a descending scale as well as a challenging ascending scale pattern. if you have access to handbells, you can incorporate those as well for a very pretty arrangement. Be prepared for the kids to rush the ostinato, though!
