Virtual Choir: Lux Aurumque

Composer Eric Whitacre distributed sheet music, asking vocalists to submit YouTube audition videos. He then posted a 'conductor track' to direct the choir. The result: 185 voices, 243 tracks, from 12 countries. The piece is 'Lux Aurumque,' by Whitacre, composed in 2000.
