Beautiful choir and capella of one of my favorite songs. Thank you from New
MIMom - Ditto to OjBrad's comment. James's arrangement has been
around for over 10 years. And SSN's video was great with the cellos.
MIMom, Steven Sharp Nelson uses James Steven's arrangement, so yes that is
why it sounds the same.
@lynnea1, the chorus is singing Nearer my God to Thee in Latin
I couldnt understand what they were saying in the background...
MIMom I am not by far any expert in music but to say that they are identical -
the same song, yes. But thanks for the adverting on the Piano Guys - I loved the
MIMom: With a Christian song that got credit on the sinking Titanic in 1912,
I'm confident you'll find a cornucopia of arrangements spanning the
century that are similar to this. It's a wonderful song and arrangement.
Something that was simple incredible has become amazing.
So which came first, James Steven's version or Steven Sharp Nelson's
cello version of this same song. Play them side by side, they are almost
identical. I am very familiar with the cello version and when listening to
vocal point and the choir I felt like I knew exactly what was coming next. It
is interesting. That said it is a beautiful arrangement for voice and cello.
