That is a TRULY beautiful song and in whatever version. You simply can't kill a good song.

My favourite version though is the live version performed by the Finnish Heavy Metal Band 'Nightwish' whose vocalist at that time was a highly rated Opera singer.

They give it an almost Wagnerian treatment.

I get tingles down my spine when I hear it.

It's... 'haunting'.

Have a listen to this version by Rainbow. Ritchie Blackmore's guitar playing on this instrumental is awesome. Pure magic!
