    I just heard this on the radio, by Faure, and was instantly hooked. It is beautiful the way he changed the chords on the main melody, modernizing it, but still beautiful. I gotta get this!

    I'm really getting into Schubert these days, and the E flat mass is spectacular. It speaks of so much prayer and yearning.

    I want to bring attention to the sixth of the "six Naples L'homme arme masses", as it has been recently recorded by Cantica Symphonia (it's on spotify as well as still in print). The six masses were obviously designed by a single composer as a mass cycle, each using a different part of the "L'homme arme" tune as the cantus firmus. They're attributed to Busnois due to stylistic similarities. Busnois is one of the great early Renaissance composers, overshadowed today by Dufay and Ockeghem but mentioned by the eminent music theorist of the time as one of the greats.

    It's a nice mass for any fan of the very special couple of decades that were dominated by Dufay, Ockeghem, Caron, Faugues, Regis and Busnois himself.

    One of my favorites is this one from 1810 by José Maurício Nunes Garcia (Rio de Janeiro, RJ: September 22, 1767 - Rio de Janeiro, RJ: April 18, 1830):


    Generally speaking, José Maurício is my favourite mass composer, and below you can see three more reasons

    My favorite mass is the one that was removed from by brain.

    I can't choose a single one, but Mozart, Schnittke, Ligeti, Fauré, Bach and Beethoven are all contenders.

    A very beautiful mass is that here by Brazilian composer Antônio Carlos Gomes (1836-1896) who generally is most renowned for his operas:

    Missa de São Sebastião, which he composed in 1854 at age 18:

    I would say Missa Votiva by Jan Dismas Zelenka. And this is a great video of it:

    great choice! I'll listen to it later. Zelenka is wonderful composer and but unfortunately mostly underrated outside of TC
