    It wasn't Gill but that was beautiful nonetheless. Thank You !

    When the full choir, albeit small, expands the piece at 50 seconds, it makes my hair stand on end. Stunning.

    I'm sure its up Fourparts street
    I'm afraid it's a bit High Brow for my personal taste, although I can still recognise that it was very well performed.

    I've always this one since I first heard it as the theme for the Smirnoff Ad. It may have the sound of historic classical, I suspect Peter Raeburn wrote it for the ad.
