The story of this song is tragic: In Siberia in 1852 they found a dead body of coachman who got frozen during a long road. There was a notebook with handwriting poems in his bag. Name of the author of the poems Иван Макаров (Ivan Makarov) was not known during his life time.
After a year since they were published the poems composer Александр Львович Гурилев (Alexander Gurilev) (1803 – 1858) wrote music for a poem what he liked the most. That was a start for the famous Russian romance “The Lonely Coach-Bell”. In three years another Russian composer К. Сидорович (K. Sidorovich) wrote his version of music for the poem and this romance has got a long life and all people love!

This is one of - if not the most beautiful of all Russian "folk" ballads. It usually goes by the English title, "Monotonously rings the little bell", or something similar. Monotonously is a good translation - the Russian word literally means "with once voice". This song is often performed/published in combination with other popular and well-known folk or folkloric style Russian songs. It's one of my favorites. It has all the elements of the melancholic Russian disposition - a (village church) bell ringing in the distance, a person leaving their home perhaps never to return, a coachman singing this monotonous melancholic dirge, fleeting memories of youthful joy, etc. I sang it once (po russkiy, konyechnah) for a folk dance assembly - and sort of know the words, but not everything without a cheat sheet.
Another one - also about a bell, also beautiful, and also very sad - is "Vyecherniy Zvon" (The Evening Bell). There are a couple of tunes for the latter - but one is more commonly heard than the other - and the more common tune is another of my personal favorite.
And while we're at it, check out "Stenka Razin" (Stenka Razin, the Volga boat commander) and "Denadtsat' Razbojnikov" (the legend of the twelve robbers) - a couple of other really excellent Russian ballads.
I have found the following names for this beautiful song :"The lonely bell", "Monotonously rings the little bell", and, in German: "Eintönig klingt hell das Glöckchen". The lyric
"Monotonously the little bell is sounding,
"There is so much longing in this song,
And I suddenly remember the nights that long have been passed.
"Monotonously the little bell is sounding,
