Music Thursday: The Piano Guys “Carol of the Bells/God Rest You Merry, Gentleman”

Because Monday is already taken. This column will feature music I listen to when I write, or maybe sometimes music I just like (and therefore think everyone else should, too).

All twelve cellos in this medley of “Carol of the Bells” and “God Rest You Merry, Gentleman” are all played by one cellist, Steven Sharp Nelson of The Piano Guys.

I’ve already talked about the origin of “Carol of the Bells.” “God Rest You Merry, Gentleman” is another one of my favorites and another old carol, dating back to the sixteenth century or even older.
