It is difficult to imagine that Christmas is almost here and it will not be long before we are hearing the music everywhere, regardless of whether we are at the mall or driving in our car. Some of it is going to be quite familiar because we may have heard it for many years but new versions are constantly being released, some of which are quite brilliant.
When Pentatonix sings a song, it is almost sure to be an instant viral hit. It doesn’t matter if they are singing one that you’ve never heard before or one that you’ve heard hundreds of times, they put a spin on it that makes it quite beautiful. In this video, they are singing God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, one of the more popular Christmas songs that was first published in 1760.
Since being released several centuries ago, it has been a popular part of Christmas ever since. Bing Crosby perhaps has the most popular version that was released in 1945. I’m sure that the original author nor Bing Crosby could ever have imagined that Pentatonix would be sending it in this way, but once you hear it, you will love it.
