    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.

    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 cello version.

    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.

    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. go to videos and you will find Nearer My God to Thee
