Carolyn Sampson I know that my Redeemer liveth

Discovered today on BBC Radio 3.
Carolyn Sampson Soprano
"I know that my redeemer liveth" is taken from the book of Job (and Corinthians). I can imagine Job saying, thanks for the camels and sheep, your Majesty - but it's only worldly wealth. I'd rather have a voice like Carolyn Sampson ... maybe an octave lower, on account of having a beard :)

   

Lyrics
I know that my Redeemer liveth,
 and that he shall stand
 at the latter day upon the earth.

 And though worms destroy this body,
 yet in my flesh shall I see God. (Job 19:25-26)
 For now is Christ risen from the dead,
 the first fruits of them that sleep. (I Corinthians 15:20)
