Cædmon's Hymn / Beowulf

A wonderful arrangement sung in the West Saxon dialect of Old English. See the lyrics here. You might also be interested in this other performance of West Saxon origin, the prologue of Beowulf:

The gentleman reading the epic is, in fact, Angus himself, masquerading in public under some other name :-). Look here for text and translation.
