Music Monday: 'Ode to Joy' sung by a 10,000-voice choir

This week's Music Monday is the choral finale in the 4th Movement of Beethoven's 9th Symphony. The lyrics are from the poem Ode to Joy - some might be more familiar with the tune being used in the hymn Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee.

This particular version is sung by a 10,000-voice choir in Osaka, Japan; evidently, Ode to Joy is very popular over there.
