Default Die Gedanken sind frei (thoughts are free) choir production

I did another choir production of the german traditional "Die Gedanken sind frei".

That track was recorded in sections (soprano, alto, tenor, bass) using a backing and click track and headphones. Every singer has his/her own mic.

Lyrics (copied from wikipedia):
Thoughts are free, who can guess them?
They fly by like nocturnal shadows.
No person can know them, no hunter can shoot them
with powder and lead: Thoughts are free!

I think what I want, and what delights me,
still always reticent, and as it is suitable.
My wish and desire, no one can deny me
and so it will always be: Thoughts are free!

And if I am thrown into the darkest dungeon,
all these are futile works,
because my thoughts tear all gates
and walls apart: Thoughts are free!

So I will renounce my sorrows forever,
and never again will torture myself with whimsies.
In one's heart, one can always laugh and joke
and think at the same time: Thoughts are free!

I love the reharmonization and the production and the singers.
But I hate the dull Rhythm and silly notes of the melody.

I can't come up with a single criticism of any element of this performance. I like!
