“Ring Christmas Bells,” The Ray Conniff Singers, 1962

Whether you realize it or not, you have more than likely heard a Christmas tune by The Ray Conniff Singers. Ray’s two Christmas albums: “Christmas with Conniff” and “We Wish You A Merry Christmas” (from which this song comes from) each went platinum in 1959 and 1962.

Conniff’s “Ring Christmas Bells” is an arrangement of “Carol of the Bells” by Mykola Leontovych with lyrics added by Minna Louise Hohman.

Jingle Bells, The Ray Conniff Singers, 1959

Ray Conniff was a bandleader and arranger who had a Top 10 hit in 1966 with “Somewhere My Love,” from the movie Doctor Zhivago. He is best known for “The Ray Conniff Singers,” who released three Christmas albums.

The Singers rendition of “Jingle Bells” is notable because it features not only the rarely-heard second verse, but also a third, possibly written by Conniff.
