Henry Purcell Incassum, Lesbia, Incassum Rogas

An Elegy On the Death of Queen Mary, 1695, here performed by a tenor, Douglas Nasrawi. I will also point you to the same piece as performed by the exquisite Anne Sofie von Otter. Sadly, the video won't open in Canada due to unspecific licensing restrictions.

The more inventive among you will find a work around, otherwise it is available as part of Von Otter's Lamenti, disc 40 in the 111 Years of Deutsche Grammophon: 55 CD Anthology (worth every penny).
