It's called Cloudburst;
what an absolutely phenomenal composition.
The photo link is Eric Whitacre, the green link is the World Youth Choir directed by María Guinand.
Other great songs
(these are Eric Whitacre):
Jeff Enns, Ave Maria
Funicoli, Angelina (World Youth Choir) Hilarious!! Italians will actually understand what he's saying. I was merely entertained by his face and voice, I LAUGHED OUT LOUD. Cutest song ever!
I'm so glad I looked up choral music; I'd let myself forget what a powerful influence and rewarding experience that choir was for me. I adored choir. I always wanted to be a better singer and to continue improving. It's so, so moving for me to hear vocalists of that calibre, with that much talent, all in one place, at one time. And such a percussive nature to creating rain in a song. Kind of like that Honda Commercial, remember this? Amazing, amazing, amazing.
Weep O Mine Eyes, for a friend
