    This is sticking to one work per composer. Otherwise all the Bach I'd list would break this thread.

    There are too many composers I have not yet listened to, the list is only from what I have listened to so far. Conducters names are given behind the work titles or the composers if titles are from the same album.

    +Hail! bright Cecilia! & Welcome to All the Pleasures by Henry Purcell (Trevor Pinnock)
    +Paratum Cor Meum and Invenerunt Me by Heinrich Schutz,(Roland Wilson)
    +Ach strafe mich nicht&Daran ist erschienen die liebe Gottes by Johann Rosenmuller, (Arno Paduch)
    +Omnia quae fecit Deus, by Vincenzo Albrici(Jan Katzschke)
    +Motets Super Flumina Babylonis(Olivier Schnebeeli), Nisi Dominus(Martin Gester) by Marc Charpentier.

    +Aus der tiefe rufe ich, by Johann Philipp Fortsch (Roland Wilson)
    +O Vulnera Doloris(Consortium Carissimi)& Domine Deus(Flavio Colusso), by Giacomo Carissimi
    +Psalms of David, by Claude Lejeune(Michel Laplenie)
    +Ave Regina(1614, Ferrera version)& Bone Iesu Verbum Patris by Alessandro Grandi (Rene Jacobs)
    +Usquequo Domine by Henri Desmarest(William Christie)
    +Ich hatte viel berkummernisse by Georg Telemann( Hermann Max)

    I could go on and on, but here's a "Top 20", limiting myself to one work per composer (Bach and Handel would take up all the space otherwise). Not in any particular order, although those in the top half are particular favourites:

    Handel: Messiah
    Bach: St Matthew Passion
    Tallis: Spem in alium
    Monteverdi: Vespro della beata Vergine
    Fauré: Requiem
    Britten: War Requiem
    Mozart: Requiem
    Beethoven: Missa solemnis
    Haydn: Missa in angustiis (The "Nelson" Mass)
    Penderecki: St Luke Passion
    Palestrina: Missa Papæ Marcelli
    Rossini: Stabat Mater
    Machaut: Messe de Nostre Dame
    Charpentier: Te Deum
    Pérotin: Beata viscera
    Janácek: Glagolitic Mass
    Messiaen: La Nativité du Seigneur
    Josquin: Missa "Pange lingua"
    Mendelssohn: Elijah
    Anon: Messe de Tournai

    Not a fan of religious music but I really like Bach's B minor mass. I can't listen to the whole thing in one sitting, though.

    Thrilled that someone else said Haydn's The Creation! Has anyone seen a live performance of this?

    I saw the creation in college back in the 1980s and hardly remember it. I have seen all the rest but Missa Solemnis, and that comes next year.

    I have both Elijah and Creation on CD sung in English.
