Here’s a fascinating and rare version of “Heart Sutra” (心經), featuring Faye Wong (王菲) and Chilam Cheung (张智霖, Zhang Zhi Lin, Julian Cheung), added to YouTube by QSelenan on 4 Aug 2008. This version was incorrectly identified as a duet with Nic Tse (谢霆锋, Xie Tingfeng), Faye’s ex, in the Aug 4 publication of this post. After a correction by Marc Chen (see comments), the post was revised and republished under its current title on Aug 6.
The song is in Cantonese, and I like the understated way they’ve approached the recording. The video is really audio with a static photo so I ripped the song and haven’t included the video. (But if you want to view it, click here.) I downloaded (from Cookie’s Buddhist Site) and added a second version of the same song on 8.6.08. The quality is better.

Added 8.6.08: Here’s a second version of the same song from Cookie’s Buddhist Site.
