    Yes, an awesome voice. He sang in the Messiah I attended earlier this month at Hill Auditorium in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He was awesome. Definitely the highlight of the evening.

    Every time I play the Philippe Sly version on Youtube this video of the same excerpt with Burton automatically plays after it. Looks like the same orchestra and chorus, different year, different soloists.

    Which is unfortunate for Sly because Burton is superior. One of the best I've ever heard.
