I'm embarrassed. As a classical musician, I should know this. I really should. I can almost place it.

What music is being played and sung in that video snippet?

Thanks.

It's from Widor's Organ Symphony Number 5 in F Minor, but a choral part seems to have been added.

You can hear some snippets here:

I think the bits you hear in Fashion Aid are from the toccata.

Ah, yes! Exactly!

I think what threw me was the slow tempo.

Now that you tell me, I slap my own forehead!
