Doveman & Anais Mitchell

Hat tip to Christmas Underground for spotting this grandiose cover of 'I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day', a poem from the 1800s set to music. Probably best known in the version of Bing Crosby, or this gorgeous cover by The Civil Wars. Doveman, who once covered the whole Footloose soundtrack (100 points in my book) asked playwright/singer Anais Mitchell to join him on this Sufjan Stevens-like, rich version. Love it.
