6. Tallis: Spem in Alium (The Tallis Scholars)
This choral epic, here performed by the Tallis Scholars, was composed in 1570 for eight choirs of five voices each. It produces a particularly haunting effect, with each different vocal part gradually combining and falling away at various points to create a transcendental listening experience.
