I came across this by accident. The feelings this music evoked were so beautiful, so moving that I knew I had to share it. Originally made famous by Simon & Garfunkel such is the power of the lyrics and music of The Sound of Silence that it has become a classic. It is no wonder this American a cappella group from Arlington Texas chose to present it, giving it a lovely twist of their own.
Consisting of vocalists Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Kirstin Maldonado, Kevin Olusola, and Matt Sallee, the group is known as Pentatonix. They have won numerous awards and it is little wonder when you hear them sing.
Somehow they manage to respect the mastery of Simon and Garfunkel, and whilst not taking away from the original, they nevertheless produce a beautiful blending of haunting sounds, and clear, rich tones. They touch the soul with the purity of their rendition. Each member of the group is different, is individual and a wonderful example of diversity coming together.
At times it is lovely to share solely for the experience of sharing. Therefore I sincerely hope you enjoy it. However, either way, feel free to let me know. I love hearing from you.
