I have performed this piece (as 1st tenor). it is difficult to sing when you are on the verge of tears at the sheer beauty of it.

I was 12 when this was filmed, but I've never been able to get enough of these guys. I still dress like this.

To me, no one can ever come close to Ludwig van. If you've never heard this before, please take a moment to listen. It's really quite amazing.

Love the Jeff Buckley tune. Was not familiar with his work, but he looks and sounds a lot like a favorite artist from the early 70s, Tim Buckley. Is Jeff possibly Tim's son? Beethoven's 9th is another favorite of mine.

This is one of my favorites, I used to sing it when I was a bass choir singer:

The music on this thread has moved me to tears! WOW.

BbbamI, I either never knew or had forgotten the playing of the American National Anthem at Buckingham Palace on 9/11. That is the one that got me really bawling. Thanks for that.

And Gumby, what an amazing piece.

FIREdreamer, that's a great rendition of a classic that is so stirring.

I am still torn as to what I could add that would contribute to this already wonderful thread.

It's a damn shame they both died so young.
