Deanna Durbin and the Vienna Boys Choir (Wiener Sängerknaben) perform the Bach - Gounod setting of Ave Maria.

This performance was filmed in the fall of 1937, when Durbin was 15 years old. The movie it is taken from is "Mad About Music".

Thanks for dholl17 for pointing out that the boys choir you see is the St. Luke's Choristers from Long Beach, CA. However they are just mouthing the words that Deanna Durbin and the Vienna Boys Choir had already recorded.

*Note - this is the second version I've posted. The earlier version simply had too much distortion. This time, I've made a new master DVD from my original tape and uploaded with a program which allows for higher quality sound transfers, and I hope the listener will now be able to appreciate a little bit more how Miss Durbin sounded. Still, considering the recording was made in 1937 with primitive equipment by today's standards, there is no way to know just how great her voice was.*
