    Default What are your favorite Sacred Music pieces/ smaller songs from a large work?

    What are some of your favorite Sacred Music pieces or smaller songs from a large work? I don't mean the full work, but pieces or smaller songs from a large work like 'Gloria in excelsis Deo' from Giacomo Puccini's 'Messa di Gloria'. What are your favorites?

    Thank you. I love all songs from Verdi's Requiem especially Libera me and Dies Irae.

    I'm cheating - choosing an instrumental arrangement of Erbarme dich (from Mattheus-Passion) by JS Bach - Nigel Kennedy on violin and Albrecht Mayer on oboe. On a Bach disc from DGG. Here is the Spotify link to this movement:

    Here's one that hasn't been mentioned:

    Couperin - Première Leçon de Ténèbres

    Quomodo sedet sola civitas plena populo! Facta est quasi vidua domina gentium; princeps provinciarum facta est sub tributo.

    How doth the city sit solitary, that was full of people! how is she become as a widow! she that was great among the nations, and princess among the provinces, how is she become tributary!
