I am listening to Schoenberg's String Trio for the first time. Call me an old fuddy duddy set in his ways, but the fact that this composition just won the game totally baffles me.

Op. 45. Well deserved. I regard it as a clear demonstration of the musical expertise and authority of the honourable members of this excellent forum. (y) Very glad to be here.
Glad to be here too, to more Arnold wins! Cheers

EDIT: To be honest, I much prefer Mahler's 2nd (I've never shied away from expressing my love for this piece) and the Missa Solemnis too, but the 2nd wins pretty much every time it's on the ballot, so I voted for Op. 45 to help it win

To be honest, I prefer the Missa Solemnis to op. 45 - by an edge. Such a great piece. I listened to some masses between 1800 and 1830 these days, Haydn, Chérubini, von Weber, Schubert, not the worst ones, but Beethoven is miles away, and it seems that the next masses which are on par are from Verdi (Requiem) and Bruckner (#2, #3).

Mahler #2 has had its time in my CD player, and it was a long time, but I feel that it has passed its zenith in my list of preferences ... with Mahler, I am more into #3, #6 and #9 ... and I hope that the world of his songs will some day open its doors to let me in.

But preferences are changing, and that's fine.

I have a strong distaste for Verdi's Requiem. I love many of his operas, but that piece just stinks, IMO. I agree with everything else in your paragraph, I actually think Beethoven's mass is underrated.

Mahler's 9th and 6th are my favourites of his after the 2nd, so kind of the same there. Regarding his Orchesterlieder, I'm very fond of them, the Rückert-Lieder and the Kindertotenlieder are for me as essential as some of his symphonies.

Ditto for me on your first three. My fourth choice would be the Moeran.
