Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!

In searching for a video of this aria from Handel's Messiah I found multiple versions of the familiar composition - and one very different approach to the piece. Here's a sample from the familiar -- and the contrast.

What do you think?

I had heard this arrangement before and liked it quite a bit. Though this collection of singers, perhaps would not have been my first choice, it still is quite enjoyable. Thanks for the posting.

Gaudete! I shall say it again: gaudete!

I love the traditional version, but enjoyed hearing the contemporary one as well. Thanks for expanding my musical knowledge!
