    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.

    The Piano Guys, once again, present the Christian Christmas message resulting from the most obvious questions of "What Child is This?" and the newer Messiah Birth question of "Mary Did You Know?". "What Child is This?" poses the initial question of who is this special Savior child employing the 16th century English melody "Greensleeves". "Mary Did You Know?" is becoming a Christian Christmas Carol that is many times well recorded and much loved, originally created by Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene, finished in 1991.

The Piano Guys main players: Jon Schmidt on piano and Steven Sharp Nelson on cello create a stirring instrumental version of "What Child is This?": Below.

The Piano Guys' fellow Christian vocalist, Peter Hollens, delivers a virtuoso performance of self harmonizing an a cappella version of "Mary Did You Know?": Below.
