Voted for the Mass. I wonder why almost everyone has heard of Handel's Messiah but I get a blank stare when I mention Bach's Mass or even Mozart's Requiem Mass.
if it is in the english-speaking world, then Messiah is better known because it is in English and you can sing along without getting (many of) the words wrong, perhaps?

The Mass and it's not even a contest, a very unfair comparison.

Handel's Messian. Even if the mass were Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, I would still pick Messiah. But would rather have both.

Messiah during the Christmas holiday season, and the B minor mass at other times of the year. But I don't listen to Handel for the most part.
