Jeanine De Bique in rehearsal

This kept coming back to my mind today — Jeanine de Bique rehearsing Rejoice Greatly from Handel's Messiah. She sang it at the BBC Proms too — here — which is amazing, though they took the beginning a tad too fast IMO. 

But this snippet of her rehearsing is, I think, the best of all. Just glorious. 

I can't remember if I've ever posted it before — excuse me if so. What a phenomenal gift she has, eh?
