WATCH Russia’s best opera voices sing Ave Maria in touching tribute to gutted Notre Dame

Some of Russia’s best opera singers banded together to record a heartwarming musical message of support to the people of France grieving the disastrous fire at Notre Dame de Paris.

Singers from the Bolshoi Theatre, the Mariinsky, the Novaya Opera and other leading theaters in Russia recorded their rendering of Schubert’s Ave Maria in wake of the disaster at France’s Gothic jewel. The country nearly lost its most-visited national treasure this week, after the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral’s roof and spire were devastated by a massive blaze.
