In one of my very occasional attempts to join the 21st Century, I have committed a YouTube video! Behold:
In my defense, I hasten to point out that although the medium may be 21st Century, the *music* is 19th century, and the *visuals* date from 1534-41.
This is my very first try with Windows Movie Maker, so please be kind.
In my (totally objective) opinion, this is the best sample of the "Dies Irae" from Verdi's Requiem now available on YouTube. The reigning favorite features a terrific Bass Drum, but Sir Georg Solti's interpretation is, as usual, fast and loud - and little more than that. Moreover, there's nothing to look at but a still of Giuseppe Verdi (admittedly a handsome fellow).
Whereas I provide saints and sinners, angels and devils - and a performance directed by "the greatest ever conductor to stand in front of orchestras" - to wit, Sergiu Celibidache.
Not to mention amateur-hour panning and zooming!
