Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Okay, better late than never.  This was an rg and greg co-production--next week there'll be another one, the theme will be "pitch".

And here's something (slightly!) more contemporary with interesting timbres.  Note that their huge success was based around the two female voices (two different timbres, one softer one sharper--well, that's my take); and then in the background all the different instruments popping in and out, most people probably didn't notice at the time, but the people (Benny and Bjorn) who put them in knew exactly what they were doing.

Don't fight forces, use them R. Buckminster Fuller.
