I came across Gregorio Allegri while browsing through iTunes but they only seem to have a handful of tracks by him with one track Miserere appearing on a number of albums. Miserere sounds quite nice but does anyone know if he produced any other notable works?

Not a singer,but as a composer I've written a small mass following classial traditions.There's something really devine in that music,just gives me the goose bumps.

I'm not a singer nor a huge choral music fan, but there are a few composers who write so well for voices that it's impossible not to appreciate. It doesn't get any better than this:

The hardest piece I had to ever translate and sing at University level was Bernsteins Chichester Psalms. The real technical aspect was learning the Hebrew language. If you never have I certainly think it would be a challenge. There were only three guys who could learn the language and sing the tenor part in our entire choir.

That was many moons ago Bec. I would have to practice scales for at least six months to even attempt this piece again. And the language is a barrier in itself.

You were able to sing THAT?!

I had no idea you were a singer, let alone on a pro level like that. Much respect Fred.

I'm guessing I could still work it out. I sang that at the Biola Festival along with Brahms Requiem when I was in college. I've never encountered anything as technically difficult vocally on any scale. I'm sure there are pieces out there, but it certainly was the most work i've ever put into something.
