Name That Tune!

So, my friend has been asking the internet, to no avail, what this song is:

http://audioboo.fm/boos/413781-what-is-this

He'd like to relay the following info:
A) Sorry for my voice!
B) It's not Jupiter
C) The bit I'm singing is played by the strings in what I've got in my head.

Any help you can give is greatly appreciated. I know what song he's talking about, but we're in the same boat. I can hear it in my head, and I keep thinking spring for some reason, but searching hasn't gone well. Cheers!

It took some searching, but I've determined that this is the second movement of Maurice Ravel's string quartet in F.

Oddly enough, I've listed to enough music from the Zelda series performed a capella in a similar style to your friend's to be thrown off by the voice alone. That's actually to say your friend sings well.

Cheers,

PS, when you say Jupiter, do you refer to Holst's orchestral suite? Did others identify it as such?
