    I am looking for similar, sacred, in Latin language music to "Le Chant des Templiers" performed by Ensemble Organum. I mean very similar i.e. Medieval manly choirs, without high voices but also without extremely low voices like a basso profondo. Anyone know/recommend something like this...

    Time to share my favourite piece of sacred music before I pass into the great beyond - I have worsening symptoms of pneumonia / Covid-19, at only age 24. Maybe I will survive, maybe not. But when you listen to music like this, death matters not. Thank you Johann Sebastian Bach and all who...

    Where do I start? What are the basic composers? Basic Ave Marias? Stabat Maters? Missas?

    What are your favorite Stabat Maters? Listening to Charles Villiers Stanford - Stabat Mater (1906). I found this interesting page: http://www.stabatmater.info/ The author mentions her husband had 211 stabat mater cds.

    I went looking for a thread that talked about the various forms of Mass that one might find in the body of classical music and I couldn't find one. I know there is the Wiki page on the Mass form: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_(music) but it is a bit thick and I think individuals'...

    Brazil has a very rich history and heritage of Sacred Music right from its start as a Portuguese colony in the year of 1500. Throughout the first two Centuries composing clergymen with the Jesuits in the frontline offered music with religious lyrics to people while "profane" composers offered...
  9. Religious Music
    There's a thread on sacred slow movements where people are proposing all sorts of instrumental music, romantic adagios that sort of thing. Lacking the god gene, I don't really understand the mindset. So I thought I'd start this off just for personal clarification of spirituality in music. So...

    Hi! Heard this piece of music in an episode of the television show 'Oz' but can't figure out what it is. I called it baroque in the title because to me it definitively sounds baroque, but I might be terribly wrong. Tried Shazam and Soundhound, neither recognizes it. I've tried to pick up some...

    So. I love a) Schubert and b) sacred music (albeit of an earlier era - Tallis, Palestrina). So to investigate Sch's sacred music would seem a no-brainer, no? However, I have read that it is perhaps not quite up to the, well, heavenly standard of his orchestral, chamber and solo piano work...

    I like Sacred Music, and it is often very moving and makes me reflect on the mysteries of life and death. Because of the need for decorum, one doesn't imagine that there is much Sacred Music in the classical tradition that is exciting, happy, funny and so on. Gospel Music and other non-classical...

    Taking into consideration, that Mozart was a freemason, do you think his masonic sacred music is more sincere and heartfelt than his catholic sacred music? Or do you see any other differences between the two?

    Why is 4'33" disparaged, while Western forms of sacred music get their own forum? Why do members here frequently disparage and invalidate John Cage's 4'33", which is essentially a sacred statement, while Western/Christian forms of sacred music seem to get much more respect, and have their own...
