    Big surprise: gobs and gobs of Bach, Buxtehude, and Graupner. Every time I sneeze the conductor's score for a cantata comes rocketing out. Right now my big craze has been Suzuki and the Bach Collegium Japan, their St. John Passion is mind blowing. If I could live in Leipzig and listen to High German music during every church music I would probably find a way to go every time they held a service, multiple times a day. Because I'm self employed and have the time to spare I'm sure you would find me more often than not sitting in Bach's own pew with a handkerchief handy just in case I start crying like a little girl.

    And I'm not even Lutheran. Could care less. That's a hard act for any pastor to follow up.

    I swear, one day I will take a seat in the Thomaskirche and gaze straight at God's throne. Sorry guys, I couldn't find a recording of the St. Matthew Passion in the Thomaskirche on youtube, would be nice to gaze at the mosaics and wonderful architecture as I listen.

    There are some absolutely stunning pieces on this recording and some wonderful singing from a star studded cast

    Vivaldi: Vespri solenni per la festa dell’Assunzione di Maria Vergine
    Gemma Bertagnolli (soprano), Roberta Invernizzi (soprano), Anna Simboli (soprano), Sara Mingardo (contralto), Gianluca Ferrarini (tenor), Matteo Bellotto (baritone), Antonio De Secondi (violin)
    Concerto Italiano ensemble vocale e strumentale, Rinaldo Alessandrini
    I highly recommend it and now on special offer from my favourite music store that I mention too often.

    Haydn's Missa Cellensis in C Major, Hob. 22/5 - excellent performance by Richard Hickox and his ensemble, imo.

    I'm discovering Karl Jenkins' works. I enjoyed his Requiem and Armed Man: a Mass for Peace.
    I've also been going through some Mendelssohn psalms. His sacred works are underrated!

    Possibly my favorite cantata by Graupner: Gott sei uns gnädig, GWV 110941.

    God be merciful and bless us.
    The old year has come and gone.
    Jesus is still my high priest yet.
    Is your bounty worth it?
    Open your hands Jesus.
    Let me see your treasures.
    God be gracious and merciful.

    Disc 2: Messe de Requiem - Graduel - André Campra - 1660-1744
    Some of the most beautiful music I have ever heard. Literally. I am enlightened.

    Cherubini for me too. I usually reach for his Messe Solennelle n 2 in D minor - I can't get enough of it.
    Wäre das Faktum wahr, – wäre der außerordentliche Fall wirklich eingetreten, daß die politische Gesetzgebung der Vernunft übertragen, der Mensch als Selbstzweck respektiert und behandelt, das Gesetz auf den Thron erhoben, und wahre Freiheit zur Grundlage des Staatsgebäudes gemacht worden, so wollte ich auf ewig von den Musen Abschied nehmen, und dem herrlichsten aller Kunstwerke, der Monarchie der Vernunft, alle meine Thätigkeit widmen.

    Recently I've been listening to (and greatly enjoyed) the following recordings:

    Telemann - Brokes Passion (Jacobs)
    Haydn - St Cecilia Mass (Minkowski)
    Pergolesi - Septem verba a Christo (Jacobs)
    Pärt - Adam's Lament (Kaljuste)

    Really interesting to read what the others are listening to at the moment. Thank you.

    Sorry - back to annoy you !

    Always on the lookout for lovely sacred music. Recent 'discoveries' include:
    Bernard Zweers; Sint-Nicolaas Cantate (Parts 1 & 2) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_6RhkWmbAs...haven't discovered yet if there's much more. Maybe someone here...?
    Rudi Tas; Miserere for cello & choir https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3O2kDejL4o One of a number of very pleasant sacred works by this composer.
    Armando Pierucci; Via Crucis https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WeCihXlP5TM
    Peter Maxwell Davies; Tenebrae Super Gesualdo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-IUy4eIFEM
    Modest(e) Mussorgsky; Messe de St. Nicolas https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VTXCCyZiek (link to Kyrie)
    Stanislaw Moniuszko; Premiere Litanie a la Vierge d'Ostra Brama https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhFH-a_arKQ (link to Kyrie)
    Arvo Part; Salve Regina https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHff3N98hRk

    Hope something here appeals to someone - always happy to 'chat' about sacred music !
