Christmas carols have been around for hundreds of years. In fact, the oldest known Christmas carol originated in Rome in the fourth century. One of the trends in Christmas music today is to take these Christmas carols that we grew up knowing and giving them a modern twist. Sometimes these attempts do not quite turn out to be an improvement. However, if the artists have their heart in the right place and understand the meaning of these carols, then the result can be quite enjoyable.
One of these groups that have put their own stamp on some classic carols is Our Hearts Hero. If you have read this blog on a regular basis then you have undoubtedly heard me mention this Christian band before. Last year, Our Hearts Hero released a Christmas album titled “Love Is Breathing.” You can find my original review of the album here.
This song contains some great Christmas music but my favorite has to be their rendition of Carol of the Bells. Their rock version of this Christmas classic really shows the talent that this group has. If you don’t like rock music, you probably will not appreciate their interpretation of the song, but hopefully some of you will find this music to your liking. You can check out Our Hearts Hero version of Carol of the Bells by watching the video below.
