This video was passed on to me today by one of my fellow chamber singers from my undergraduate days. The polyphony and harmony of 16th century vocal music is exquisite, and this piece is a prime example. The Cambridge Singers is a mixed-voice ensemble, but music such as this was often sung with all-male groups with two counter tenor parts. I used to be able to hit those high G's with ease - I can still get there, but only on a good day, and it's not nearly as pretty as it used to be.
