My dh and I often lament the loss of polyphony in the world. This is one of my favorite pieces of music!

Admin, if you like this kind of acapella music, I heavily recommend Eric Whitacre’s Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine as sort of a modern use of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsLiivVgxmM

And merry Christmas!! Beautiful piece–it is amazing that this kind of sound can be produced by four voices.
