Just released: Watch Virtual Choir 2.0 Perform Eric Whitacre's 'Sleep' [Video]

On Wednesday we told you about L.A. composer Eric Whitacre's virtual choir project, which combined videos of 2,052 people singing either the soprano, alto, tenor or bass part to Whitacre's composition "Sleep" into one simultaneous performance.

Here's how it turned out.

What do you think? Choir is inherently social, yet these people aren't even in the same building. Does that make the final result more or less meaningful?
