It's actually "Es ist vollbracht"
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.
(Bob Dylan)

Really wonderful. This may sound strange to some but I feel her humility before the music allowed its full impact to be felt.  The cellist is also very fine. In one of the comments below, it was said he was a Cherokee Indian, principal of the Philadelphia Orchestra.
I was looking for an English text that corresponded to what she sang but most of what I found online are different.
I thought she sang "Lion of Judah" instead of "hero" (Held) and couldn't follow most of it.
