Missa Charles Darwin: A Secular Mass by Gregory Brown

Just for shits and giggles, I decided to type "Charles Darwin" into the Spotify search bar, and I came up with this intriguing piece: Gregory Brown's Missa Charles Darwin.

And no, this is not a joke; it's a secular mass based on some excerpts from the works of Charles Darwin, beautifully sung by a classical a cappella group called New York Polyphony.  It's really rather beautiful, and certainly...a unique concept, to say the least.  Here's some info from the composer's website.
