You might like this as much as I did . . . also posted on ChoralNet:
I found this here.
A choral director used this video to make a point about the importance of diction in singing.
Here are the actual words - but don't look until you've watched it without them at least once and tried to make sense of it!
1. Blessed city, heavenly Salem,
vision dear of peace and love,
who of living stones art builded
in the height of heaven above,
and, with angel hosts encircled,
as a bride dost earthward move;
2. from celestial realms descending,
bridal glory round thee shed,
meet for him whose love espoused thee,
to thy Lord shalt thou be led;
all thy streets and all thy bulwarks
of pure gold are fashioned.
