A lovely version of this haunting song. I'm partial to the Latin version because I teach Latin.

Thanks for a great rendition.

A very creative reinterpretation of the ancient tune.

I fund myself far more intrigued by the instrumentation and accompaniment figures than the vocal line, itself, however, which is sung uninflected, and tends therefore to be monotonous.

Beautiful video!

Have to say the impression is more of the coming of something possibly OMINOUS than any cause for rejoicing.

I was reminded of the "Rough Beast Slouching Its Way to Bethlehem" made famous by William Butler Yeats.
