Osso's post reminded me that anything Josh Groban sings gives me goosebumps down to my toes:

A Christmas medly that is really special (excerpts from his "Noel" album)


And for O Holy Night fans, here is Josh singing it as only he can sing it - at the lighting ceremony at Rockefeller Center:

O Holy Night tops my list.

Tico, I had never heard "Mary, Did You Know?" until last year. Our church service on the week between Christmas and New Years is not very well attended. We planned a special musical service and hired a local gospel singer to be the main musical voice of the service. One of the songs was, "Mary, Did You Know?". It was stunning and there wasn't a dry eye in the house.

@maporsche,
LOVE Trans- Siberian! The lighting guy for them, Bryan Hartley started off doing lighting for Bears band, Cirkus. Ended up with Kiss and TSO and others.

Bear didn't want to "name drop" since he's such the misanthrope, but I don't have that issue. Cool

Anyhoo, TSO tends towards upbeat. Josh can bring me to my knees no matter what he's singing. Same goes for any childrens choir. I can't not cry when I hear childrens voices singing.

I dare you to keep a dry eye...

@squinney,
That is special Squinney. I was watching the "American Idol Gives Back" show when Josh did that rendition of "You Raise Me Up" with the African children's choir And no, my eyes weren't dry.

And I think it's really great that Bear worked with Bryan Hartley. The stuff he does with lights is amazing.

Ah I stand corrected. Well, Bear did a really good job getting him started on his way I would say. Smile

Wow! Thanks everyone! I have really enjoyed listening to all the music posted here.

Speaking of choirs....

I was in Salt Lake City for a business meeting once. The man I was meeting sister sang in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and he invited me to go visit choir practice. It was amazing!

Here they are singing "Joy To The World" -- one of my favorite BIG choir songs:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjqxVHfQ3EQ&feature=related

Bryan always had big dreams and he worked hard. It paid off for him. He's a good guy.

I am a secular Jew who is basically, an agnostic; however, I love the sound of beautiful human voices singing inspirational/gospel/liturgic music 'cause the words aren't what moves me it's the energy and harmonious sound of the voices. I prefer when I listen that they sing in another language to avoid being distracted by the words.

One of the finest, IMHO, is Aaron Neville as he sings Ave maria.

I remembered the singer's name whose voice caused me to shut my boss' door - Renata Tebaldi.
Her (Shubert) Ave Maria here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPvTZ9cOsVg

Even now that I like opera, I more inclined to like Jesse Norman's version, here, though I like both -
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=maZHi4C6Cf0&feature=related

More.. - Leontyne Price with Shubert's - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSttd2RJ5i0&feature=related

Kiri Te Kanawa and Shubert's - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRxcrPiT2k4&feature=related

Kathleen Battle, with Gounod's Ave Maria - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_-uUjsx3ao&feature=related

Andrea Bocelli, with Gounod's Ave Maria -
Bella, I like Bocelli too - I used to play the Romanza cd to death, there is something about his voice - but I've read a lot of negs by people who follow opera closely.

Well, heck, I like them all, including Ms. Church and Ms. Brightman

Today, I like Jesse's and Kiri's versions best, in addition to the Pavarotti Caracalla concert Shubert... but I speak from ignorance on all this.
