Midweek music spot: When to the temple Mary went (Eccard)

There is some beautiful music specific to events in January. There are a number of Epiphany hymns and carols, for instance, about the Magi, which can continue to be sung as Christmas becomes Epiphany. 

But my personal favourite among hymns and anthems for January is Johannes Eccard's motet for the feast of the Presentation of Christ in the Temple, called "When to the temple Mary went and performed here by the Gesualdo Six.
