Nimrod

This is a little tangential, but I liked it so much I felt like sharing it.

On a quick errand out of the office, I just heard (on my car radio) Elgar's Nimrod variation sung by an a capella choir. Sung very well. And you know what? It's just as wondrously beautiful that way as in the original. What a piece!!!!!!

In the same vein, has anyone heard Barber's arrangement of his Adagio for Strings for chorus? It's beautiful but in one recording I heard the tempo has to be sped up enough (for breath support, I guess) that it should be called Allegretto non troppo. (really he set it to words, it's an agnus dei).
