This is one of my all-time favorite pieces of music. It is the 11½ minute long trance version of Henry Purcell's "Dido", from the opera "Dido and Aeneas". The official name is Dido (Armin van Buuren's Universal Religion Mix), but I have called it simply Universal Religion because of the emotions it evokes.

In the fall of 1968 the crew of Apollo 7 set up a television camera in the spacecraft and the first visual transmissions to earth were made. At the ground control console was Cecil B. de Stafford, whose voice is featured in the clips heard.

Apollo 7 mission crew consisted of:

These astronauts are referred to in the dialog, which only featured the uplink audio. To make it more confusing the clips are not in order. As the crew tests the television link, Stafford hesitantly reads cue cards the crew has prepared and are holding up to the camera. Some is guesswork, since the camera is being focused in and out. Here is the vocals from the oratorio:

High a-atop something (reading from the cue card)
Looks good. I can see Wally handle it now (the cue card). Donn has a smile on his face, and there's Walt
Really looks good, I'm amazed
Hey I can read you, see you loud and clear
Yeah... some of the reproductions here are real good, I can look out through Wally's rendezvous window
Hey Don how about saying something since you're payin'
Actually I'm amazed, it looks real good
The definition is pretty good down here, I can see the center hatch
We'll have Cecil B deStafford down here directing
Keep those cards and letters coming in folks, it's loud and clear

Yeah... some of the reproductions here are real good. I can look out through Wally's rendezvous window Actually I'm amazed, it looks real good
Actually I'm amazed, it looks real good
The definition is pretty good down here, I can see the center hatch
Actually I'm amazed, it looks real good
High a-atop something
Looks good. I can see Wally handle it now (the cue card). Don has a smile on his face, and there's Walt

Really looks good, I'm amazed
You can see the COAS up there, the Orb-rate ball...
Actually I'm amazed, it looks real good
