What if Ashur Sargis and Evin Agassi switched roles in 1990?

So Ashur Sargis and Evin Agassi have both produced some amazing songs and albums over the last 5 decades.

But I still think their 1990 albums respectively is the best they have ever produced. This would be the ‘Pokha d’Setwa’ by Ashur and ‘Ya Kikhweh Lajlijaneh’ by Evin.

Both of these albums contained some timeless masterpieces by these legends, including:

Ashur Sargis
>Halaleet
>Pokha d’Setwa
>Lwosh an Jouleh sodaneh
>Sara D’Matan

Evin Agassi
>Kikhweh Lajlijaneh
>Qoomon Ourzeh
>Shourshia Mtele l’khiqla
>Gikhka Gikhka bet Azen

So here is the question I have for those with interest and knowledge of Assyrian music and who have heard and are familiar with these two albums: if we were to revere it or swap, so Ashur is singing Evin’s 1990 album and Evin singing Ashur’s. Who would perform better? In other words, would Evin do better singing Halaleet or Ashur doing ‘Kikhweh Lajlijaneh’?


I would love to hear some opinions on this. I don’t yet have an opinion on who would do better but will give one eventually. I need to hear both albums again to decide :)
 
I think they would perform best on their own albums/songs. I don't think the "Lyrics Style" (I don't know any other way to put it) of Ashur Bet Sargis' songs will suit Evin Agassi's voice and vice versa.

good point. But I think we have heard them sing these songs for 3 decades now and can’t imagine them being sang by anyone else.

but I would still love to hear how Evin would sing ‘pokha d’Sitwa’ and conversely how Ashur would sing ‘Qomon Ourzeh’
