The final scene of the movie goes :

“At one time, most of my friends could hear the bell, but as years passed, it fell silent for all of them. Even Sarah found one Christmas that she could no longer hear its sweet sound. Though I've grown old, the bell still rings for me, as it does for all who truly believe.”


That bell ringing sound is captured in this performance throughout. I thought it'd be a good idea to start the song with that sound.

Hadn't been in this forum for a while and was catching up. I love this arrangement! I know movie gets a fair amount of criticism, but it's one of my favorite Christmas movies, in part because of the music. Great job, saving this video to listen to again smile
