Silent Night (The King's Singers)

Acapella music is defined by vocal singing, mostly in a group context, without any instrumental backing. It found huge favour in the UK in 1983 when the Flying Pickets scored a number one at Christmas that year. Their version of Yazoo’s ‘Only You’ was not at all Christmas related but it underlined the power and sales potential of the human voice on its own. What you’ll find when listening to our playlist of Acapella Christmas songs is how you’ll hardly notice that the sound is generated by voices alone. This is starkly illustrated on Rockapella’s elaborate reworking of Paul McCartney’s ‘Wonderful Christmastime’ from 2011’s ‘A Rockapella Holiday’, with tumultuous mouth generated beats and an array of rolling harmonies that would have Brian Wilson himself in a tizzy. U.S. vocal quartet Tonic Sol-fa take another classic ‘Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!’ and make it their own. The song loses none of its inherent happy inducing power and in many ways Tonic Sol-fa give it an old time charm that recalls music from yesteryear.

Of course traditional standards such as ‘Silent Night’ are an excellent fit for Acapella Christmas music as they were originally (and continue to be) sung by church choirs. In this way the King’s Singers make their version of the old carol sound completely natural via their soft acapella singing. Naturally 7 adopt a different tact on ‘Joy To The World’ with a distinct beatbox style that gives the carol plenty of dancefloor potential. And while that might sound like heresy to many it is to the credit of the New Yorkers that they retain a reverential tone.
