Rufus Wainwright and Choir! Choir Choir! – Hallelujah
I’ve long been a fan of this song, and of the numerous covers that have been done… I count Wainwright’s as my favorite. Imagine my surprise (and delight) to see a video featuring him singing this song, backed by 1500 other singers.
The singers are part of Choir! Choir! Choir! and, to me, really stole the show here. I enjoyed the backing arrangement immensely, as the group merged and syncopated with Wainwright throughout.
I’m a sucker for choirs, and as I listen to this for the umpteenth time realize how much I miss singing in a large group. I miss singing in general, but the feeling of being lost within a group of voices is a tremendous, almost transcendent feeling.
Particularly when you’re all singing the right song.
