I came across the above Youtube video in which the player played Soprano, Alto, Tenor parts seperately and mixed them into one song.
What is your opinion on such a playing?

I'm hearing only two parts. I did this a lot with my church choir for services over Zoom when we couldn't rehearse or perform live. They recored their parts to a master track, and I combined them into anthems. I did a lot of pitch and rhythm adjustments, but the end product was more than adequate. I've also done it with solo instrument and piano. All using Audacity.

This one by the same person (verse 4) has four parts. Am I right?

I think it sounds good as well but in my opinion, not in a "stand alone" application. I think harmonies (unless "jazzed up" like The Manhattan Transfer and the like) are mostly good as a foundational backup behind a lead that's more or less loose and unrestricted.
