    Default Favourite movements from Bach's Mass

    Which are your favourites? I'd go with 'Et in unum Dominum' or either of the Kyrie Eleison's.

    Do you mean the b-minor Mass? I had the honour to participate in a performance of the b-minor Mass here in Frankfurt Germany. I was member of the choir singing bass voice. I liked the first Kyrie the most. It is fantastic.

    The end of the Credo is extraordinary in its chromatic harmonic passages!

    Like all Bach's music is plenty of the majestic, tenderness and beauty.

    Music and silence combine because music is done with silence and silence is full of music.

    Oh, to pick one is so terribly hard, my friend! The whole Credo sequence...the opening Kyrie Eleison...and especially the finale, "Dona nobis pacem"...all three are impeccable.

    My favorite movement changes. At the moment it's Quoniam tu solus sanctus. But whenever I listen to it (which is often) I am unable to shut off the music until the end of the Sanctus. Many of the movements have been my favorite movement at one time or another.

    OP: The movement closest to the end.
    Facts don't care about your feelings.
