"What Child Is This?" by Arch Nemesiz

One church where I (James) am currently serving asked me to transcribe this version of the classic carol "What Child Is This?" It creatively uses the oft-omitted verse ("Nails, nails, shall pierce Him through") as a bridge, has a bit of a hip hop feel, and also adds a few orchestra hits near the end.

This version of "What Child Is This?" was part of Toby Mac's album Christmas in Diverse City, which features various artists and other creative renditions of classic carols (e.g. "First Noel" and "O Come All Ye Faithful") and some good original songs as well.
