Gems: who wins "Wälse"?

Gems: who wins "Wälse"?

Today’s find is oddly satisfying. Opera-loving YouTuber rexeterna posted this compilation of ten Heldentenors, each singing the infamous “Wälse! Wälse!” cry from Act I of Wagner’s Die Walküre. My vote is Vickers (go Canada), but Lauritz Melchior wins for sheer duration.
