Gounod - Sanctus from Saint Cecilia Mass

I recently did something I have never done before or ever expected to do: I joined a Christmas choral group. I am completely over my head - I can read music and sort of carry a tune but I don't know how to sing and have never done so outside of my home or my car. But life is short, so why not try it? Besides, Lynne is in the group too (and is also over her head!), so it's fun to sing with her.

Among the songs we are singing is the Sanctus from Charles Gounod's Saint Cecilia Mass. On YouTube, I found this stunning rendition with tenor Michael Fabiano.
