Luna does two versions of this, both with Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab on vocals (along with Wareham). The Bonnie Parker version is a bit slower for a nice change of pace.

Re: Biggest Fan - The Album Edition - 16. Krzysztof Penderecki - St. Luke Passion

16. Krzysztof Penderecki - St. Luke Passion: 7
Admittedly, this one stretches the bounds of my comfort zone; ultimately, though - I enjoyed the ride. Having only been familiar with Threnody (which I love) up to this point I realized Penderecki was worth delving into - this is the proof.
