Question What is this classical song's name?

Here is the link FYR. It's the 1st song.

watch?v=jlui_3jn1SA (sorry, can't post links. Please kindly add YouTube URL before that part)

I don't know what piece of music she was singing. I can only hear something with "Maria", lol.

It is Ave Maria but the version by J.S. Bach/Charles Gounod.

It's a Christmas favorite. The one I play on occasion -

Yep, that was exactly the words I was typing yesterday :P See, right when I'd finished listening to the original video, my hunch'd been Ave Maria, and I opened the music player to hear it. But the version on my computer is Bach's, a piano played just like in your link. I'd figured that it can't be, and after that I went online to ask you guys.
So when I got your 1st response, I was typing 'not that, but thanks'... but then I saw your user name, and decided to press backspace...

Thanks, Ando! Your video doesn't appear though, YouTube says 'unavailable'. But now I've got the keyword Gounod, I did some search and came up with clips like this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfzGmMRpy5c
I don't know the movie. Have you guys seen it? What's its name?

Yeah. Maybe instead of judging me by my username (which is based on a character in a novel I wrote, and not on internet trolling by the way) it might have been an idea to look at my post count. Just sayin'.

Anyway, glad you found what you were looking for.

Must be a copyright issue with your country. Works fine on my end. I picked the Battle/Parkening version because, to me, it's the most simple and beautiful. Quite the opposite of this popular "contemporary" version which has a tacky club beat added at the back end -

Yeah, that's made with clips of the actress, Olivia Hussey as The Virgin Mary, Franco Zeffirelli's 1977 TV film, Jesus of Nazareth.
The over 6 hour movie is in two parts (and one 144 minute condensed version) on YouTube if you're interested.



Hussey was also Juliet in Zeffirelli's '70 version of Romeo & Juliet, still my favorite version on film.

Actually, most internet trolls have very high post counts. I've had quite some unpleasant experiences with them. I'd argue that it's the join date that we should look for. Due to spam bans, the majority of trolls don't exist for long on boards.

But hey, here's another thanks to you in the spirit of Thanksgiving!

Holy ****, that 'performance' managed to desecrate the piece quite spectacularly. She didn't even finish the whole lyrics!!

My appreciation, Ando. Your answers are always informative & touch the points that I want. You're such a cultured man!
