Panis Angelicus

Most people are familiar with C├ęsar Franck's beautiful sacred song, Panis Angelicus, but they are accustomed to hearing it at Christmas. However, it is not specifically a Christmas hymn. Here, Placido Domingo performs it in Washington D.C. on the occasion of the visit to America of Pope Benedict XVI in April 2008. It isn't the best venue for such a performance, there are obvious distractions, and Placido has to fight the wind, but he does very well.
