One element of the Wizard of Oz set, this revered melody is developed through several distinct styles in Roy Phillipe's Variations on Ding Dong the Witch Is Dead. Initially presented in a traditional setting, it is followed by a contemporary ballad with modern chords, which finally transitions into a fast waltz reminiscent of Tchaikovsky style. Creative and engaging!
