Christmas with PENTATONIX

Updated on December 22, 2014


What better time than Christmas to get to know Pentatonix and their simply incredible and beautiful a cappella versions of so many beloved Christmas Carols.

Mary Did You Know?

Little Drummer Boy


All five members of the group are incredibly strong and gifted singers, and everyone can sing the melody or harmony line equally well. But one of their greatest strengths comes in their ability to add percussion lines to the mix, often referred to as "Beatbox" effects.

Carol of the Bells

Silent Night, Holy Night

Angels We Have Heard on HIgh


Their cover of Winter Hymnal (Fleet Foxes) is not a Christmas Carol per se, but it is a beautiful and melodious song and provides a good look at all the creative aspects of what Pentatonix does so very well. Winter Hymnal has become a December and Christmas song for me.

      I just discovered Pentatonix this Christmas and what a blessing they are, and they are phenomenal in sharing their gift to His glory.

      Beautiful tribute.

      Hello Diane. You and me both, I just love their stuff. And although I have bought a couple of their CDs, I always do a lot of listening on line first to make sure I really like the songs before I spend any money (and that way I can usually buy a used copy for 20-40% of the original price). We did have a very nice low-key, but still festive family Christmas. Hope you did as well. Blessings! Theresa

      Hi Sparklea - So glad this music struck a chord with you. It lifts me up every time I hear it. I think "Mary did you Know" is my favorite as well. :) Blessings to you and your family this Christmas and in the coming year! Theresa

      Hi Bill - glad you enjoyed the music - they have become one of my favorite groups. I sang in an a cappelle group for two years in college and I know how demanding it is, the skill and hours and hours of practice that are required. Third day of rain here, but at least we have no ice. Blessings!

      Jamie - I am so glad. They bring me such joy and beauty and build up my spirit as well. How could I not share them? :) Their non-Christmas music is also great, but this was a really special album. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. :)
