‪Escolania de Montserrat: Com vivim – How we live‬‏

A documentary posted by the choir themselves. I'm a great admirer of this choir's work and am planning on posting quite a few of their performances. It's always nice to know a bit about who it is whose doing the singing and this choir are worth knowing about. Their singing is consistently to a very high standard. They carry quite a workload, as well as their choral duties, and their schoolwork, each member is required to be (or become) highly proficient in at least one musical instrument. I've posted a video of 13 year old Albert Cano playing Chopin's Fantaisie-Impromptu Op.66 below the fold so you can see and hear what I mean. Enjoy :-)
