Christmas Songs You’ve Likely Never Heard, Day 18

“Carol of the Bells” from “A Claymation Christmas Special”

This is my favorite sequence a the Claymation Christmas Special. A chorus of bells performs Carol of the Bells, conducted by Maestro Quasimodo. I have a hunch we’ll be in for a treat.

Why I Shared It

The bells give off hilarious expressions as they hit themselves with mallets to create their individual notes. The conductor’s anger comes to a slow boil and an inevitable confrontation throughout the song. And I will always marvel at the creativity and craftsmanship involved with making a production like this out of clay.
