    Smile Your top choral pieces?

    For me, it has to be Mozart's Requiem and Handel's Messiah.
    I love Karl Jenkins The Armed Man, as well as Benjamin Britten's War Requiem...
    I know they're all very popular pieces, but I love them!

    Does anyone agree or disagree with me? Give me your comments!

    John Rutter's Requiem is delightful as is his Te Deum.
    Also partial to Fauré's Requiem and the Seven Last Words by Dubois.

    I love Ode to Joy by Beethoven and any version of Psalms 121. I lift up mine eyes
    to the hills. That one is very beautiful when a choir sings it.

    I watched some Highlights of Messiah on Christmas at Belmont University and it was pretty good. I love Verdi's Requiem and Mozart's Requiem (especially Dies Irae) and I've heard that Faure's Requiem was good, but haven't actually listened to it.

    The 5th movement of Mahler's 2nd tops the list though for me.

    Has to be a toss-up between Mozarts Reqiem and Handels Messiah...But I also like Thomas Tallis and Palestrina at times....Also hear Bruckners "Helgoland"... Oh mustn't forget Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, that's and awesome piece!..

    I think that some of the old hymns sound good in a choral.

    John Rutter's Requiem is delightful as is his Te Deum.
    We are doing that in Chorale at uni. Saccharine rubbish.

    Mine would be (in no particular order)
    Verdi's Requiem.
    Mahler 2,
    Any Mozart,
    Bruckner Motets
    A few Weelkes pieces,
    Arcadelt's pieces (especially Il bianco e dolce cigno)
