For Ash Wednesday: Allegri's "Miserere" Performed by the Choir of New College, Oxford

And for Ash Wednesday, a performance of Gregorio Allegri's "Miserere" by the choir of New College, Oxford. I'm grateful to Phil Ewing for having uploaded this clip to her magnificent Ennis Blue blog today. As Phil notes, information about the song and psalm (psalm 51) on which it's based, along with the Latin text, may be found in this Wikipedia entry.
