Reposting from Shakesville - Well because it is beautiful

Here is the lead up.... (link to shakesville)
Shaker JeanneMK sent this video of a flash mob, contracted by Banco Sabadell and comprised of 100 people from the Vallès Symphony Orchestra, the Lieder, Amics de l'Òpera and Coral Belles Arts choirs, performing "Ode to Joy" in Sabadell, Spain, which I am posting because it's beautiful, and, I don't know about you, but I need to gaze at something beautiful in the world right now. "Ode to Joy" is one of my favorite pieces of music, and I have a hard time hearing it any time without getting teary; this pretty much resulted in gale force blubbery.
