    To be specific, I have recently been listening to the Sanctus from Bach's Mass in B Minor, especially this particular recording the violins sound crystal clear and like angels themselves playing...

    This piece brings me closer to heaven than any other religious work, by Bach or anyone else;

    I have to also add this as well, it deserves a mention since it isn't the usual Bach I listen too, and the more people listen and discover this amazing composer the better I feel:

    Andre Campra's Messe De Requiem in D Mol; a hidden gem by a French composer of the middle Baroque era.

    I must be forgetting some, but here are mine:

    Monteverdi, Vespro della Beata Vergine (I'm left speechless after listening to the Magnificat)
    Palestrina, Missa Papae Marcelli
    Brahms, Ein Deutsches Requiem
    Mozart, Great Mass in C minor (especially the Kyrie!), Requiem
    Fauré, Requiem, Cantique de Jean Racine
    Allegri, Miserere

    Yup, Monteverdi's Vespers has something very special. Pure sound, and drama. Gardener's 2nd version is unbeatable. Someone also mentioned Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms: modern sounding but structurally very tight and expressive, with Boulez. Funny thing is after I heard Stravinsky's own version with CBC orchestra, and Toronto singers I had to return the disc; was too loose and messy. I probably heard every version of Mozart's Requiem, the one that stands out to me is Hickox's version. Tight and powerful, though some critics say it is too fast.

    Bach, Actus Tragicus, Vox Luminis





    Prompted by reading:

    James Gaines, Evening in the Palace of Reason: Bach Meets Frederick the Great in the Age of Enlightenment, 2006.

    "...we would be best served to put down this book, get out the score, put on the music, read the words and the music together; and after playing it through several times, consider the power of inspired (as well as rigorously educated and deployed) genius. The St. Matthew Passion, the B-minor Mass, the Brandenburg Concertos, the cello suites: All of Bach begins here." Pages 94-95

    I have been listening to this recording repeatedly and to my ear Gaines is correct: At the age of twenty-two, Bach already had already composed the heart of all the above masterpieces in the Actus Tragicus.

    It may or may not be true, but if Bach did compose this piece for the funeral of his mother's brother, it warms my heart to think that as he thought of his uncle, he also thought of his mother. He was able to turn such a tragedy in his young life into a source of all his masterpieces.

    You're right - I am interested in and enjoy a variety of styles, although my exposure to "classical" music as a whole is still very limited. It is a lot of fun to hear music by composers and performers I have heard of but never took the time to hear, until now. I'll never have this many new experiences, and pleasant surprises, in music again.
