    Pärt's sacred music is really sublime, in my opinion—especially his Te Deum (which employs his own tintinnabuli compositional technique).

    I have been listening to Alfred Schnittke's requiem and liked it very much. Very impressive and moving. Right now I am listening to Bach's Ascension Oratorio.

    I picked this up yesterday at Dearborn music and love it. Have listened to it 4 times already.


    It is an oratorio but actually is much more like an opera as noted in this article,

    The musical style is primarily operatic and the original singers would have found Scarlatti’s arias not very much different to those in his operas.
    In fact many oratorios had a dramatic structure not unlike opera and were effectively sacred operas.
    La Santissima Trinita ... takes as its subject a theological discussion on the mysteries of the Holy Trinity.
    Unlike the typical opera, there is little action, but mainly discussion, not unlike Strauss' Capriccio, which is mainly discussion/debate and is an opera. Anyway, I am keeping this with my operas.

    There are five parts:

    Fede (Faith), soprano, five arias and four duets;
    Amor divino (Divine Love), soprano, four arias and two duets,
    Teologia (Theology), mezzo-soprano, four arias and one duet,
    Infedelta (Faithlessness), tenor, three arias and one duet,
    Tempo (Time), bass, three arias.

    You can listen to sound clips here.

    Total time is 67:27. The one pictured above comes with a libretto. The re-release (shown in the above linked article) does not.
