Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!

*sing songy voice* I have another song for you all to enjoy!

Yes, thanks to the lack of inspiration for a decent post, I am simply sharing more music with you lovely people.  This song comes from an amazing group called the Piano Guys, and let me tell you, they are incredible!  You can check out their website to learn more about them here.  We had been watching their videos on youtube, and Jamin, our wonderful brother, gave me their cd for Christmas.

To give a short summary, there are two musicians in the Piano Guys, a pianist (obviously) and a cellist (who also does a lot of the percussion), then three others who arrange, record, video, edit, and all that important stuff that goes over my head.

Most of their songs are awesome instrumental arrangements of popular songs, soundtrack themes, even some classical pieces, but the one I want to share with you is a beautiful cello arrangement of the old hymn, "Nearer, My God, To Thee."

Mr. Nelson, of the Piano Guys, is the only musician in this song, but he has played all the different parts you will hear so wonderfully put together.

According to various accounts, this is one of the last songs that the band played on the sinking Titanic, with most agreeing that the hymn "Autumn" was the final song.

May God bless you and yours on this first day of the year 2013!
