Though only one of them plays the piano, these two are part of the group “The Piano Guys.” I included a number by them in my 2016 Christmas music lineup, and am glad to bring you another one this year.
“O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” is one of my favorite Christmas songs, and this duo does some really nice things with it.
I was interested to learn that the video was filmed on the set built in Goshen, Utah by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for their New Testament video series. You’ll recognize it in this clip of Mary and Joseph* bringing the infant Jesus to the temple. You can also listen to the song again in a video interweaving the musicians and a montage of scenes from the life of Christ, which you can find here.
*Shout out to Alex Greenfield, the actor playing Joseph in the series. If I knew the actors playing Mary and Simeon I’d be glad to shout out to them as well.
