The PS22 Chorus

Today, for your delectation and delight, another piece of music. Once again, this comes courtesy of my good pal Nathan (who’s essentially my good-music radar). It’s a bit different from the two I linked to the other day. This one is a cover of Phoenix’s ‘Lisztomania’ by an incredible children’s choir called The PS22 Chorus, and was apparently performed after just two rehearsals. It’s…well, see for yourself. Turn your speakers way up and let this wash over you. Stunning, and goosebump-inducing stuff even if you’re not familiar with the original.

And yes, there are several other covers from this talented group of kids (and their obviously inspirational tutor), including covers of Lady Gaga, Coldplay and Journey, the latter well and truly putting Glee to shame.

Not really much else for me to say other than: enjoy!

  1. Oh wow Chris, great link. Never heard the song before, never even heard of the band, but the way those kids sing just makes me well up. Lovely.

  2. Yeah, they’re amazing. I watched a few of the other vids, too – I think that’s still my favourite, but there are a couple of other crackers.
