Tonight, I remembered my affinity for motets.  Specifically those of Thomas Tallis and Anton Bruckner. I then stumbled across this video of Spem in Alium, a piece originally composed for 40 but here sung by 700. It is not the clearest sounding version of the song, but it is nothing short of sublime.  

It really makes me wonder… these individuals come from different locations, different walks of life, have different ideals, agendas, and goals, but can come together, put all of that aside, and make something so divine in absolute unity.  If only all people of the world could get past their differences and work in unity towards the common ideal of a better future for all. Oh, pipe dreams.  It must be time for bed.
