Miserere mei, Deus - Gregorio Allegri
"Have mercy on me, O God"
Around 1630 Gregorio Allegri set music to Psalm 51. It is considered to be one of the finest and most popular examples of renaissance polyphony (puh-lif-uh-nee]. It is often heard on Ash Wednesday, following Shrove Tuesday, marking Christ's return to Jerusalem.
