These students display superb talent in celebration of Christmas.
Voices of Lee released this new arrangement of “Carol of the Bells” earlier this month. They interspersed new refrains of “Merry Christmas” to give the tune a darker, jazzier feel. We especially loved how they used the beat boxer and bass voice to make a quick breakdown about half a minute in.
Voices of Lee is an a cappella group from Lee University who became popular after competing on the talent show The Sing-Off. They perform “Carol of the Bells” with just their voices, and culminate the piece in a glorious high note.
The way they build tension is superb. This arrangement is quickly becoming our favorite version of the popular carol.

"Since you are here...
…we have a small favor to ask. Aleteia’s readership continues to grow rapidly, however advertising revenues across all media are falling fast. You may have noticed that many websites are putting up paywalls in order to sustain their journalism. For us, however, this is not an option as our apostolic mission is to encourage and inspire Christian life for as many Catholics as possible. We would also like to reduce the number of ads on the site, but it is simply not possible unless we generate income in other ways. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Aleteia’s journalism takes a lot of hard work and money to produce. We will continue to serve you because it is our mission, but please consider making a contribution to support our work and help us secure our future."
