Jingle bells – Ella Fitzgerald
“Jingle bells” was written by James Lord Pierpont and published under the title “The one horse open sleigh” in the autumn of 1857. Supposedly, it was originally written to be sung by a Sunday school choir, or as a drinking song but became associated with Christmas music in the 1860s and 1870s. It was initially featured in a variety of parlor song and college anthologies in the 1880s and was first recorded in 1889 on an Edison cylinder.
Carol of the bells – The Mormon Tabernacle Choir
