Music to listen to before you emigrate to a desert island

Singet dem Herrn ein neues Lied - Bach

Mottetto. BWV 225. Pure joy and I urge you to put the headphones on and escape for 12 minutes. Note the use of soprano, alto and tenor clefs for pitching middle C on the stave, so useful for the clarity and relative simplicity in the score and pitching many vocal parts across a wide range. Sadly we don't use these clefs much in vocal music today.
