The holidays wouldn’t be the same without those timeless songs we all hold near and dear. One of those songs is “Carol of the Bells,” and while there are many versions, “BYU Vocal Point” delivers one of the best renditions.
The performance begins in a church where the band members are seated in pews scattered throughout the church. The song builds until guest singer Savannah Shaw walks through the church.
Matt’s tune from “Wayfaring Stranger” blends perfectly with Savannah’s “Carol of the Bells”. The pair eventually meet in a church for a grand finale that features intricate harmonies with solo voices rising from above.
The a capella ensemble consists of nine members from Brigham Young University. They are under the direction of Emmy Award-winning director and former member McKay Crockett. In 2011, the group placed fifth on the third season of NBC’s The Sing Off. This song is the perfect soundtrack for the holidays.
