Very enjoyable. In this context I am not sure how I would define perfection.

I would like to see a lot more of this by competent singers and arrangers. I do not really enjoy pop versions of operatic arias. They cannot be sung without dumbing them down. This one is not dumbed down and I like the first soprano second soprano arrangement.

I would love to see a Tenor and Baritone version of this aria. Inappropriate...of course! Would it even be possible? Are there any Tenors and Baritones who would be capable of attempting it?

They are off and it's annoying. I give them an A+ for fun and C- for effort.

Agreed Equaleet. We are talking about fun not high art.

Here is another one, and please it is not about the quality of the singing.
It also looks like Raimondi forgot to bring out his score which becomes obvious later on.
