I've been listening to this piece these days. This is such a beautiful folk song written by Robert Nathaniel Dett (1882 – 1943), a Canadian-American Black composer, but the first 36 sec, and at 2:34 is among the deepest vocal work I have ever heard. I can't believe that this piece has only gotten 20 likes in 11 years on Youtube.

Not the typical fare for most of the members, but this is one of my new favorite bands. The entire band is tight and has some of the most talented musicians in metal today. If you are not into heavy music the first video is the one to start with. The second one is not a ballad, but shows the diverse range of her voice.

The current Soundtrack I have playing for my classroom right now.

This piece has insane dynamics. So, what did I do? (Call me a weirdo, but) I compressed it a bit, then did an upsampling to 5.1 - and well, now I can listen to it really loud, and with a guaranteed "wow" effect...
