Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis
I heard an excerpt of this today as background music in a video about Ernest Shackleton's ill-fated voyage to Antarctica, posted at Scribal Terror. It's a haunting melody; here's the full (17-minute) composition. You can play it while scrolling further down the blog.
I chose this version because I used to work for Indiana University (though not at the Music School).
