An awesome modern version of a Russian folk song

For a dose of goosebumps, watch and listen to Russia's leading Turetsky Choir (the cutest male singers this side of the Atlantic) sing Black Raven, a traditional Cossack song. Two excellent English translations can be found at respectively Lyrics Translate and Soviet Songs in English. Make sure you use a good sound system - the voices and the sound engineering are nothing short of perfect.
