As a former music guy, re: #3…. That double tonguing tho! Dang!

As a former opera guy, I’m also quite partial to Renee Fleming’s national anthem from this past Super Bowl.

Also, have you seen the Gaither Vocal Band’s version? I’m not usually a fan of them, but this arrangement is superb: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vwxv-EZpb7U
