    Very beautifully sung! I hadn’t heard of The Sixteen before. Are there different versions of the plainsong, though? We did this at St. Thomas’ today and our plainsong was slightly different.

    Yes, I do recall reading somewhere that there are different versions of Allegri’s plainsong. But I cannot remember where I read it.

    The Sixteen are one of the better professional choirs in England, in my opinion. In some repertoire they are too big for my tastes, but they always sound terrific. They have made many recordings. (Here are some reviews.)

    It is good to hear from you. I wish you a happy and fruitful Lent.

    Thanks, Vince! Very interesting. I knew there would be something wrong with the experiment.
