Friday, we mentioned the stirring rendition of The Battle Hymn of the Republic performed by the U.S. Army Chorus at Wednesday's White House reception for Pope Benedict XVI — at 13,000 in attendance, the largest White House welcome in history. We recommended listening to it to hear one of the most uplifting sounds in recent memory. Thanks to a loyal reader, you can! He sent me a YouTube link (should have thought of that myself). It must be good. It already has more than 52,000 views and a separate video posted on YouTube that I happened across has more than 8,000.
So, click here to hear The Battle Hymn of the Republic as sung by the U.S. Army Chorus at the White House reception for Pope Benedict the XVI. It runs 4:44, but you will want to replay it a number of times.
