    Roman Coliseium (SP?)

    I had no idea they were using this for this. Have enjoyed others videos, if this is against the CoC, mods let me know and will edit it.
    For your listening pleasure as well as visual pleasure!

    That was the favorite song of my two departed sisters, and was sung at both of their funerals. It brought tears to my eyes then and again now. Thanks Jonathan, that was beautiful.

    In my opinion it is simply the most beautiful song ever written. It is haunting and stirring at the same time. I never ever tire of it.

    Many have recorded it some good and some bad. These guys certainly did it justice.

    Thanks Jon, that's one of my favorites too. I used to butcher it almost nightly singing it to my daughter when she was a little girl at bed time.

    Like the good book says, make a joyful noise unto the Lord. It should have a side not that says "unless your wife is elbowing you in the ribs telling you your singing to loud."

    The history of the song and John Newton the writer is a pretty amazing read also.
