    I never tire of listening to Bach's Mass in B Minor.

    No love for Biber's Missa Salisburgensis? It's one of my favorite masses and it has some really nice moments.

    Bach Mass in B Minor
    Beethoven Missa Solemnis
    Brahms German Requiem
    Janáček Glagolitic Mass
    Mozart Coronation Mass
    Mozart Great Mass in C Minor

    Not necessarily in that order. The Brahms German Requiem is particularly special to me because I played the cello in a performance of it decades ago.

    Those by Beethoven and Janácek are on the top. For me, they represent the peak in that musical form.

    I also like these ones (not necessarily in order):

    Martin - Mass for double choir
    Mozart - Great Mass in C minor
    Stravinsky - Mass
    Gretchaninov - Missa Oecumenica
    Braunfels - Grosse Messe
    Bach - Mass in B minor
    Martinu - Field Mass
    Haydn - Missa in tempore belli
    Poulenc - Mass in G
    Weber - Either mass
    Gounod - Messe solennelle en l'honneur de Saint Cécile

    Leaving aside Requiems, the five masses I keep returning to are in order:

    Bach B minor Mass
    Haydn "Nelson" Mass
    Machaut Messe de Nostre Dame
    Josquin Missa "Pange Lingua"
    Janáček Glagolitic Mass

    Followed various others of the Mediaeval and Renaissance eras.

    If I were to live a thousand more listening years I still can't imagine changing my mind:

    Bach, Mass in B Minor

    No video on YouTube to do it justice.

    I guess the Bach B Minor & the Beethoven Missa Solemnis still stand as (possibly) the GREATEST TWO, of all; there're many, other fine choices …. as we've seen. For the Beethoven, the main choice might still be the 1940 version, with Toscanini conducting Jussi Bjorling, Bruna Castagna, Zinka Milanov and Alexander Kipnis. I like the Bernstein/Concertgebouw (1979), but the earlier version has UNDENIABLE attributes, and no doubt won't be equaled.
