The Piano Guys have released a new festive video that contains over 1,000 participants, making it the world's biggest nativity scene ever staged.

The video, which includes reworked versions of carol favourites 'Angels From The Realms Of Glory' and 'Angels We Have Heard On High', also features vocals from The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, fellow viral video stalwart Peter Hollens and American Idol runner-up David Archuleta.

In the end, 1,039 people featured in the world record for the largest live nativity. Here are some choice highlights:
