    I regretted about my earlier post in this thread, I should have said I love all musical works alike written during the baroque and Renaissance ages(900AD-1770AD). It becomes very difficult for me to single out a few pieces that can be numbered as I discover more and more music from those ages.

    If you liked BWV 277, you will love these cantatas by Bach:

    Aus Liebe will mein Heiland sterben

    Agnus Dei

    Erbarme Dich

    And for a few choral favourites:

    Wir setzen uns mit Tränen nieder

    Kommt, ihr Töchter, helft mir klagen

    I do not like the use of exaggerations but when I heard last week "o mensch bewein dein sünde gross bwv 622"played by
    Ton Koopman I was totally shocked, overwhelmed,helpless and in awe.I happens sometimes when I listened to Bach that I am completely connected with something very intimate and profound.It is joy and sadness at the same time when Bach our comforter speaks to us in all its splendour.

    I've just listened to this choral prelude now and it's not about this world indeed. so much beyond that.

    Amen! IMO, there is no more beautiful "moment" in music than this.

    Perhaps not THE most beautiful sacred music I have ever heard, but this is one I have recently discovered and have found myself lost in. Just sublime.

    A lot of sacred music is for choir and orchestra. I wish that composers had written more sacred pieces for solo piano! One of my favorites in this genre is Liszt's Benediction de Dieu dans la solitude. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K03xMG7fdQ4

    I don't know that I can say it's the most beautiful, but one of my favorites is Karl Jenkin's Requiem.

    In addition to the Latin movements, he also set 5 Japanese haiku 'death' poems.
    "The instrumentation of these haiku settings includes the ancient Japanese wind instrument the shakuhachi." He also used some ethnic drums and "even a hip-hop rhythm in the Dies Irae!"

    Quotes from the liner notes.

    This is also a bit more modern. It was a transcription from Barber's Adagio for Strings that the composer did himself:

    Although you could literally list half the arias Bach wrote I always found this gem from his Magnificat was often overlooked:

    I ran across Barber's Agnus Dei some years back and spent several fruitless hours trying to find the mass that it was abstracted from. Finally had a "Doh!" moment.

    I could choose almost anything from Josquin but my favourite composition of his is the Gloria from Missa pange lingua:

    W.A Mozarts - Requiem (mentioned), Faures - Requiem (also mentioned) and Johann Matthesons Oratorium - Brockes Passion: Der für die Sünde der Welt gemarterte und sterbende Jesus. (Suggestion: the Accademia Filarmonica Köln recording from 2005.)
