Monteverdi: Cantate Domino
Voices of Music

From the YouTube page:
Monteverdi’s classic motet, performed on original instruments by the Early Music ensemble Voices of Music. In Cantate Domino, Monteverdi interweaves an unusual dual ritornello structure with alternating sections of rich polyphony.

Cantate Domino canticum novum,
Cantate et benedicite nomini ejus,
Quia mirabilia fecit.
Cantate et exultate et psallite
In cythara et voce psalmi,
Quia mirabilia fecit.

Sing to the Lord a new song,
sing and praise to his name,
for he has done great works.
Sing, rejoice and praise
with harp and the sound of psalms,
for he has done great works. Psalm 96:1,2; Psalm 98:1,5
