I am looking for the MOST beautiful Latin (Yes, like old Latin, like Catholic Church Latin) music. Would you all be willing to share with me your favorite Latin pieces?

I am also looking for sorrowful, lamenting, and possibly even angry or motivating yet enriching classical music. Any kind will do, so please share with me your favorites.

You can't go wrong with Mozart's Requiem. Moving, dramatic, and in Latin.

Canto Gregoriano is also a collection of Gregorian chants done by the Benedictine Monks of Santo Domingo de Silos.

Those two are off the top of my head. I'll post more when I think about it some more.

Haven't listened to it all the way through (only the first handful of minutes). Coincidentally this piece is an Oratorio (many of which were based around religious scriptures).

I present to you, "Oedipus Rex," by Stravinsky


Hope you enjoy!

PS: Overall, the first movement has a very dark, dramatic tone to it. I am sure that this will somewhat fit what you are looking for.

For old Latin music, it would be a little tough to find only one, but look up Tropes or Organums done by people like Leonin, Hildegarde von Bingen, or any kind of Trouvère. Works by St. Augustine are good too, and one of the most famous Medieval Latin pieces is Machaut's Messe de Nostre Dame,works by Philippe de Vitry, and Franco de Cologne. You can pretty much search Medieval music and there should be quite a lot.

In regards to Classical music, here are some of my favorites:

Rachmaninoff's 2nd Piano Concerto in C minor

Tchaikovsky's Symphony #6

Beethoven's Emperor Concerto

Shostakovich's 2nd Piano Concerto

Prokofiev's 2nd Piano Concerto

Some piano-only stuff:

Rachmaninoff's Prelude in G minor

Chopin's Etude op. 25 no. 11 "Winter Wind"

Debussy's "La Cathédrale Engloutie"

*perks of being a music student, but sorry I don't know too much about old Latin Masses

Chopin's Nocturne

Albinoni's Adagio in G minor

Maurice Ravel's Pavane for Dead Princess

Pachelbel's Canon in D

Gabriel Faure's Pavane OP. 50

Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake Waltz

Debussy's Reverie

Anything by Ludovico Einaudi although he may not be classed as a classical musician.

Joe Hisaishi does some amazing soundtracks, give Resphoina a try; It's one of my personal favourites.

The first four are probably my favourite classical pieces, so I'd especially recommend those, enjoy :)

P.S. I'm very sorry that I haven't provided any links but I am new here and so have no idea how to do it haha
