Poulenc's Dialogues of the Carmelites: Finale

Here's another Salve Regina from Poulenc, recommended by the Red State Mystic on the previous post.

From the YouTube page:
Finale to Poulenc's Opera Dialogues of the carmetiles as perormed by the metropolitan opera in the late 80's early 90's (not sure)

To this day, this is one of the most popular Met productions and unfortunately this telecast is not likely to be released on DVD.

It boasted the talents of Jessye Norman, Regin Crespin (in her Met farewell), Betsy Norden, Maria Ewing and Florence Quivar among others.
Here's a different version; very Euro. No info blurb, though:

I'm glad you enjoyed it. It's very moving, especially in the context of the Opera as the sisters go off to the scaffold.
