    Here is a list of possible choices. I took it from Wikipedia, I noticed that Haydn has two and only one is listed, so may be the same with other composers.

    Bruckner, Berlioz and Dvorak. I like them all so much that I find it hard to establish any order of preference. Bruckner is the most unearthly, spiritual, transcendent; Berlioz is the most monumental, stunning, domineering; Dvorak is the most earthly, honest, energetic, almost... lusty, as in sublimating-primal-animal-impulses-to-higher-ones-while-not-neglecting-or-suffocating-them!

    One is like the Sun, the other like a grand Cathedral, the third like an Eucharist in an ancient rural chapel.
    Wäre das Faktum wahr, – wäre der außerordentliche Fall wirklich eingetreten, daß die politische Gesetzgebung der Vernunft übertragen, der Mensch als Selbstzweck respektiert und behandelt, das Gesetz auf den Thron erhoben, und wahre Freiheit zur Grundlage des Staatsgebäudes gemacht worden, so wollte ich auf ewig von den Musen Abschied nehmen, und dem herrlichsten aller Kunstwerke, der Monarchie der Vernunft, alle meine Thätigkeit widmen.

    Yes, it is famous for that reason.

    I like the Charpentier and Pärt ones (and some others in between, but I don't know most of the OP's list well ).

    Michel Delalande's Baroque Te Deum was recorded by Les Arts Florissants and is quite good, similar to Charpentier and Lully.

    Going back further, Jacobus Vaet wrote a lovely Renaissance Te Deum.

    To me, any Te Deum is similar in character to that single word that differs by just one letter.
