A True Renaissance Man

Here's a beautiful a capella choral piece by Johannes Ockeghem (Born sometime between 1410-1425 and died: 1495) - Missa Prolationum - Kyrie (It's the first part of a mass).  The sheet music is provided in the video, and it's fun to follow along.  There's a message at the end from two...well, not so true renaissance men.  Make sure you stay awake for that, and then you can go to bed if you like (not like you'll have a choice).
