    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YUrsHWnpixo

    for me it is the Gregorian Hymns. Playing, singing or listening.

    but then I'm sort of old fashioned

    For me, Beethoven's Missa Solemnis and Verdi Requiem take pride of place. "Theatrically religious" attracts me most.

    When you don't know what you're saying, you take a long time to say it. When you know what you're saying, you get pithy.

    I have not read the entire thread yet, but pretty sure nobody else has mentioned this one: Schubert's German Mass. It is a very straightforward, pared-down choral work, but I find its very simplicity to be sublime and beautiful.
    ... yet for us will still remain the holy German art... (Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg)
    ***
    Auf die Berge will ich steigen,
    Wo die dunklen Tannen ragen,
    Bäche rauschen, Vögel singen,
    Und die stolzen Wolken jagen.

    This is a very fine list and I myself would gladly spend many hours on the clock listening to these great choices.

    I have four performances alone of Haydn's the Creation, which for me WAS his greatest creation.

    After the Kaiserquartett, you mean
    And if seriously, I agree. I only have one performance though, that of Leonard Bernstein and the Bavarian Orchestra.
