Something to make your heart sing...

I came across this today, it isn't new, but it was to me.

Since this morning I have watched and listened to this several times.
It is incredibly moving, absolutely beautiful, and moved me to tears each time. 

I hope if you listen to it, you will find it as joyful as I did.

I hope the link works, it is from YouTube.

    I love Beethoven and his Choral Symphony no 9 was his last and perhaps his greatest.  What a fantastic and truly joyful rendition you have found. Thank you.

    Hi Rob,

    It is special isn't it. I found it early yesterday morning and when the family woke up I had them all listening to it..haha! 😊.

    Hope you are having a good day.

    Yes, it is really special. Amazingly, Beethoven was totally deaf when he wrote the music. I’m just tone deaf. 

    Yes thanks Lou, a great day. England beat Australia in the semi final of the cricket World Cup today.  The final is on Sunday and we are out for Sunday lunch☹️. Haha, I will enjoy the lunch anyway and watch the rerun later. If we win, there will be plenty of those.

    It actually brought a lump to my throat. I would have loved to have experienced it in the flesh so to speak. I bet the atmosphere was electrifying!

    Although I am a bit of a rock chick at heart, I also love classical as well.

    I had to watch it again.... Beautiful!
