This version by DQ Lee packs a dramatic punch/ He not only sings both roles but vocally acts out the text.  I don't know of any one else who could do this as well. Stay tuned for the Caccini Ave Maria . beautifully done. PS Please don't tell DQ stands for Dairy Queen

Maybe Youtube has the Georges Thill version in which he is
joined by two other singers.  As for this guy, he sounds like no
other countertenor I ever heard, and seems unhampered by theirTHis version by DQ L
usual inadequacies.  Might his upper range represent the sort of
power that the castrati were famous for ? - ( but not the lower,
needless to say).    : )
