We usually don't take the church part seriously here, in this weekly feature, but can't resist this unusual vid of part of Beethoven's Mass in C Major, performed in a church in Westchester County, NY, with the only accompaniment by Anthony Newman--the famous Bach interpreter--on organ. Added note: I was there and the back of my head shows up in videos (the entire Mass is on YouTube).
