Christmas Carols: Two Amazing Renditions

Our senses are a gift from our Creator, and our Advent and Christmas become more special as we give thanks for our enhanced ability to experience our surroundings through sight, scent and sound.

In that spirit, I would like to share a couple of amazing Christmas carols posted on YouTube.  The first is an a capella rendition of "Little Drummer Boy" from Pentatonix  from their PTXmas album.  The group--which consists of vocalists Scott Hoying, Kristie Maldonado, Mitch Grassi, Avi Kaplan, and Kevin Olusola--won the third season of The Sing-Off on NBC.

The second carol is an interpretation of "Angels We Have Heard on High" from The Piano Guys. Here's how the group describes itself:  What do you get when you mix up a marketing genius that does video, a studio engineer that writes music, a pianist that had a successful solo career, and a cellist that does pretty much everything? The Piano Guys: a miraculous meeting of “guys” with the same intrinsic purpose – to make a positive impact in the lives of people all over the world through music videos.
