It's likely that cherub-faced opera phenom Charlotte Church would have never opened her mouth to sing “Silent Night” on a British talk show had she known that video mash-up master Andy Rehfeldt might one day set his sights on the clip.
In his version, when the demure singer opens her mouth to sing the holiday classic, she sounds more like the spawn of Satan than a voice from the heavens. Thanks to Rehfeldt's over-dub magic, throat shredding vocals now replace her ethereal solo performance while blistering, metal guitar takes the place of the original, refined orchestration.
The overall effect is hysterical, unless of course you're Church, then it's likely horrifying.
“Usually the editing is the painstaking part. You have to line everything up just right. It can take hours,” said Rehfeldt, 48, a classically trained musician who earns a living as a session player. “But it always seems worth it when it's done and we're in the studio laughing our heads off.”
