Miserere Me

As an ex-Christian, I still find it pleasurable to acknowledge some of the holy days, in that they have often inspired brilliant music and art. Here is one of the treasures of my Christian heritage – Gregorio Allegri‘s “Miserere mei, Deus” ( “Have mercy on me, O God”). Traditionally sung over the Holy Week preceding Easter Sunday presents the music with footage from BBC’s Earth movie.
