    Moving. It makes one pay attention when the tune is no longer the familiar one. I had never heard this one. Thanks for posting.

    The Mozart gets more airplay but I prefer William Byrd’s (this setting). Very powerful, and the Tallis Scholars are among the best. My choir is performing the Des Prez setting of Ave Verum Corpus tomorrow, which is lovely and challenging, but I still prefer the Byrd. Thanks for the video.

    As I listened to this most beautiful piece I scrolled down to the image of the discarded little child you had posted 2 days ago. Couldn’t ignore the connection
    Thank you as always

    What a most gracious and beautiful way to memorialize a precious unrecognized and rejected miracle given to us by God. I have never heard the William Byrd Ave Verum Corpus until today. I love the a cappella movements of female and male voices. It is similar to Mozart and yet very unique and distinctive. I love the setting illuminated only by flickering candlelight and the echoing of voices against the vaults. I am a tenor in the Choral Society here in Pueblo, Colorado. Now I will recommend William Byrd to our artistic committee. Thank you and may God bless you.
