    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.
