    Expanded to six-and-a-bit minutes of ecstatic bliss by Fauré in his Cantique de Jean Racine. I'm sure Fauré was inspired by Mozart but, whether he was or not, the Cantique is a beautiful work.

    If i take the Fauré in the car with me, I guess one could call it Cantique Road Show.

    1. Josquin Desprez: Missa L'Homme armé sext toni, Agnus Dei, as sung by The Tallis Scholars
    Absolutely number 1 for me. It is the music that I want to hear in heaven. This is one of the most magical pieces of music ever written, especially the third "Agnus Dei", which begins at about 3:45:

    2. Josquin Desprez: Stabat Mater, as sung by La Chapelle Royale with Philippe Herreweghe
    3. Josquin Desprez: Ave Maria, as sung by Weser Renaissance Bremen
    4. Josquin Desprez: Missa Pange Lingua: Agnus Dei I, II and III, as sung by The Tallis Scholars
    5. Heinrich Isaac: Angeli Archangeli, as sung by The Clerk's Group
    6. Palestrina: The Agnus Dei from the Missa Papae Marcelli, as sung by The Tallis Scholars

    yes, and this music is fascinating too....just difficult to stay on this earth/ to stay in touch with a surrounding reality after listening to it, being exposed a lot to it, that's why I try to mix genres of CM that I listen to

    at the same time I guess for some people this music can cause different effect, it helps them to stay in touch with the reality...
    empowers to found the ground and bring more peace in their mind.

    Listening to everything possible "sacred" works by Vivaldi, Nisi dominus, Laudate, Magnificats, Gloria, Stabat Mater, Salve Regina,etc - and I'm realizing this is underappreciated composer for sure , he is overrated for his 4 seasons, I mean his 4 seasons are put higher than his other , perhaps more profound works....But well, it's all about perception, and of course 4 seasons are beautiful, who would negate it? But these sacred works ARE sacred!

    Nobody seems to know the Choral Cantata "Verleih uns Frieden gnädiglich" of Felix Mendelssohn. How is it possible? It's devastating beautiful. You can hear it with Philip Herreweghe right here:

    And don't be shy with the sound level!
