My absolute favourite setting of Ave Maria

While browsing on YouTube, I came across a vid of my absolute favourite setting of Ave Maria by Josquin des Prez. I came to know this setting thanks to my singing in a small Schola in Chapel Hill, singing Compline services every Sunday night of the academic school year. We just finished for the Fall Semester, and won't start up until after a week after the Spring Semester has started.

We haven't done this setting for a while, with the Choirmaster instead opting for settings by Arcadelt, Verdonck, and Victoria, and I will admit to really missing singing this one.

I don't think it's the best quality recording, but it was enough to bring back happy memories.
