Buon Natale! I missed the concert on tv as busy with Christmas--is there some link to watch it on internet?
I'm waiting for videos on YOUTUBE as well! Buone feste Angelica.
ciao Silvy from Switzerland
The whole concert is on Youtube!!!!!!!!! Thanks Florin and Chiara for finding this:
I am confused--I only found links to Michael singing 2 songs? He sang 4 at the rehearsal --and I didn't see anything with the songs DIV4S sang--they were wonderful and sang 2 with Michael and 1 alone-- so is just part of the concert on YouTube or was the program cut back for TV?
Thanks for the link!!!
Hi Angelica, in the link Pilar posted, in the playlist, there’s “Silent night”, “O holy night” and “Hallelujah”. I think that since the channel owner Bisnah listed this one 2 hours later, he/she didn’t have time to add “The prayer”, to the playlist but it’s right here:
I don’t know in what order they were played at the rehearsal but the 4 songs are there. Did you have a program of the evening Angelica? In any case, this video of “The prayer” I think sums up how glorious this concert was: Michael singing beautifully and holding his own with 4 soprani! I can only imagine how overwhelming the feeling was in the Basilica: I think I would have levitated! Lol Thank goodness for Youtube! Happy listening all! Take care Angelica. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
