Trinity Sunday: Grosser Gott!

One of the best things about Trinity Sunday is that we get to sing the hymn Grosser Gott, or "Holy God, We Praise Thy Name," which is our English version of the Te Deum. You would think you would be able to find a good video of this great hymn being sung in English, but I could not locate one. Here it is being sung in German at St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna.
