Beautiful choral Ave Maria

Occasionally I hope to post or link to something that strikes me as especially beautiful from the realm of art.

Here is a version of the Ave Maria (actually it is the Angelus, which includes the Ave Maria) for male choir by German composer Franz Biebl (d. 2001) that is particularly beautiful. In the clip below it is sung by the outstanding choral group, Chanticleer. It was performed at Christmastime at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
