    Bruckner's A Capella settings of the "Ave Maria" are lovely

    Osmo Vanska says Sibelius' Seventh is a sacred work!

    Definitely the Salve Regina sung by Benedictine and Cistercian monks at the Compline office. Being there live is a must!

    The girlfriend got Vivaldi's "Gloria" the other day. GREAT stuff IMO and from someone not overly fond of choral music yet - but this one got my attention pretty well.

    Oh! I forgot all about Bruckner's Ave Maria! I love it too.

    I absolutely love Walton's 'Belshazzar's Feast'. I may be slightly biased though, given that I have played it!

    I would say Verdi's Messa da Requiem but it is too secular to be a good mass.Its impact is unrivalled but when it comes to spirituality definitely Bach's B minor Mass.

    Based on the number of times I've heard it (countless), the number of recordings I have of it (above two dozen), and the fact that it's my favourite work in the entire Western Art Music canon, Rachmaninov's All-night Vigil (a.ka. Vespers) must be my favourite.

    I'm also rather partial to Brahms' A German Requiem (20 recordings in my library), Faure's Requiem (eight recordings, at least), Mozart's Requiem (about the same number as the Faure), and almost every Renaissance work I've ever heard.

    I know I might be stretching it a bit... but could not Mahler's Eighth seriously be considered sacred? It's certainly as uplifting as any other I've heard... though you can't beat the B minor Mass.

    I have trouble calling it a symphony! I watched clips of the first part on YouTube, and if I hadn't been told what is was before, I would have thought that it was a sacred choral work.

    Want a piece of classical music identified? Post a link or upload a clip here. Someone might have an answer.
