Renaissance is a six-part documentary series by Andrew Graham-Dixon on Renaissance art. I came across an upload of episode 4 on YouTube, and there is a classical piece that starts playing in the background at 21:18.

Can anyone identify it?

    The description below the video lists four titles that were used. Light in Darkness by Evelyn Glennie; Hymn Of Joy - De Wolfe Music; FUNERAL OF AMENHOTEP III from ACT I, SCENE I OF AKHNATEN by the Stuttgart State Opera; African Sanctus: Agnus Dei - Kyrie by David Fanshawe, The Ambrosian Singers, Alan Parker, Mustapha Tettey Addy. Did you check already, whether it's one of those? – Arsak Apr 12 at 16:54

    @YourUncleBob That seems to be it, can you make that into an answer? :) – Brahadeesh Apr 22 at 3:03

This piece is an ode by Henry Purcell titled "Here the deities approve". You can listen to a performance of this ode by Alfred Deller, along with Gustav Leonhardt and the Leonhardt Baroque Ensemble.

    @guidot The OP should be able to comment on their own question, I believe. Nevertheless, I've submitted an edit to this answer to give it a more complete form. – Brahadeesh Apr 23 at 7:23
