In Memorium

We watched the annual Memorial Day concert in Washington DC last night, and Sarah Brightman performed this moving Requiem.

Although Memorial Day isn't really for another 4 days, because we're celebrating it here in the USA today, I bring you this from Sarah Brightman and Youtube.
Take a moment.

That was wonderful! Both Sarah and the young man sang beautifully and was very moving. Thanks!

This has been one of my favourite AL Webber pieces for the longest time. Ms Brightman (formerly Mrs Webber) has a glorious voice that's marvelously well suited to the piece. Another version recorded by her several years prior, quite a different interpretation but also a joy, is this one:

Lovely Marji. Our girls all sang Requiem with their high school choir in Europe, Erica even got to sing it for Pope John Paul II and her choir had a private audience with him.
