Two Doses of Pavarotti Pulchritude Through Youtube

Youtube has proven useful! I came across 2 absolutely stellar performances by the late classical master tenor, Luciano Pavarotti. I must share them! The first is a magnificent performance of Ave Maria, and I am uncertain of when it was done. Even an excessively saccharine supporting choir cannot harm the outstanding elegance of Pavarotti's voice. His finesse and grace throughout yields a phenomenally beautiful song. The second, Nessun Dorma, is from a 1994 Los Angeles concert. Nessun Dorma is the perfect showcase for Pavarotti's power, amazing range, and brilliant, clear tone. Happy listening!

Evangelicals may also like to know that Stand to Reason recently set up a page on YouTube. You can also find a number of debates and presentations by William Lane Craig, Gary Habermas, and J.P. Moreland, among others. Despite the fact that I don't personally find their arguments very persuasive (and, no, I'm not an atheist, agnostic, pantheist, or relativist), I thought you might be interested.

Groothuis might be pleased to know that one can also find a number of videos of jazz greats like John Coltrane, Buddy Rich, Charles Lloyd, and Thelonious Monk. :o)
