That was most soul-stirring.

DOUBLE WOW ! I can only imagine the logistics of putting that together!

As cool as this is - and it is undeniably just Wow! - I must admit being up on a stage singing it at Christmas is a whole other level of !!

Eric Whitacre's music is simply fantastic.

Yes, Julie, singing for others is such a joy!

It must feel so for those who participated, however, to see it produced and see all the comments and adulation,too. Not as magnetic as those ineffable moments within sight of one's audience, but certainly stirring, nonetheless.

Indeed. Of course, it helps that this piece has a transcendence all its own. I did not mean to denigrate this performance in any way, it just made me think of those times being literally in the midst of this piece myself. Our sound was different, but still you can hear the light.

I'd love to see the process of how this all came together - if they sang sang simultaneously (which would be an incredible feat) or if it was all submitted individually and then assembled by the director. That's one of the wonders of our time, though - that musicians can each do their thing, sitting at home in front of a computer, send it over the wires or the through the airwaves, and something so incredibly beautiful is the result.

Miracles and wonders...
