The Piano Guys are back for Christmas, 2015, and we are blessed to bring you a generous helping of their rare and fun talent videos. These four guys do it all: They arrange, video capture, produce, and perform their vast array of melodies, and even more, they often transport Jon Schmidt's Baby Grand Piano, and more easily, Steven Sharpe Nelson's various cellos to whatever exotic location they need to tell their melodic story.
This next video is not a Christmas Carol, but it is often heard in a church, and one has to know that Pachelbel's Canon is serious business, but not in the manner that the mirthful Steven Sharpe Nelson performs it in quad. Does Cellist Nelson remind anyone of Bean? Here below.
The second video also has no relation to the Christmas season; however, it is very much related to Christ, who, of course, is fully responsible for the Christian Christmas. This lovely melody is the musical marriage of the theme song from the wonderful film, "The Mission", composed by Ennio Morricone, who is one of the greatest film scorers of our age, and the traditional Christian anthem "How Great Thou Art": Below.
