Miserere, (full title: Miserere mei, Deus, Latin for “Have mercy on me, O God”) by Italian composer Gregorio Allegri, is a setting of Psalm 51 (50) composed during the reign of Pope Urban VIII, probably during the 1630s, for use in the Sistine Chapel during matins, as part of the exclusive Tenebrae service on Holy Wednesday and Good Friday of Holy Week.

Christopher Tin is the composer of Baba Yetu, Civilization IV soundtrack, arguably one of the best video games of all time.
I really recommend listening to his album, Calling All Dawns; the first track is Baba Yetu. Enjoy!
“Baba Yetu” is a song by composer Christopher Tin. It was composed in 2005 when video game designer Soren Johnson, his former roommate at Stanford, asked Tin to compose the theme song for Civilization IV and was sung by Ron Ragin and the Stanford Talisman. For its re-release in Tin’s debut album Calling All Dawns, it was sung by Ron Ragin and the Soweto Gospel Choir. [Wikipedia]
