Carol of the Bells – Thrilling Piano & Violin Cover by 92 Keys
Background – By Trevor Loucks
This third video by the 92 Keys crew represents some firsts for us. First Christmas song. First song we wrote above 150 beats per minute. First time I’ve ever worn a bow-tie. And the first time we had the opportunity to work with the lovely and talented Crista Guthrie. It’s amazing to me what everyone on our team brings to the table and Crista is no exception. From the moment we first made contact, she didn’t hesitate to explore this idea with us.
Like for so many other people, this song has been top of my list of Christmas favorites for as long as I can remember. And as far as 92 Keys is concerned, this is the first song I arranged from scratch for this group. Was just so excited to finally do it! Had to get it out of my system before working on any of the other pieces.
Can you hear three other songs which are embedded in this arrangement? I’m sure most people will pick up on one of them, but if you can hear two of the other embedded songs, then that really is amazing. You can now call yourself a music nerd. Congratulations.
Writing this Christmas arrangement started in April and now here it is in its final form as the final 92 Keys song of 2015. This has been an incredible year of learning and growing for all of us, me especially. Thank you to all of you who have supported us. It means more than you probably realize.
