In the Christmas Spirit: Piano Guys, Part VIII

    Publisher's note: If you appreciate the musical and cinematography creativity of the extra talented Piano Guys, as much as we do here at BCN, you can easily access all of their segments here.

    My Christmas, 2016 discovery of new Piano Guys holiday material is complete, and I have them here on BCN for your Yule Tide enjoyment, after exhausting an extensive, thorough search on BCN's Video Search. I wish there were more than these two that I found, but there were not more when I performed this search, but, hopefully, we will find more next year.

This first video is the classic carol on everyone's top 10 list, "Silent Night", with the legendary Plácido Domingo handling the tenor heavy-lifting: Below.

    The second featured video is one we have featured before, but it is so extra-expansive in its production, maybe the best I have ever witness, I could not resist revealing it again, this time with a different set-up. This mega production with a variety of scenes, all projecting immaculate joy is not only sincere, but the most perfect message that can be related in this most optimistic of holidays - the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
