Mine would be Shubert's "Ave maria" (D. 832, Op. 52, #6 for you purists out there)

I share in hopes that others will share their favorites, and I might discover something new to me.

Hey, that's why they call 'em classics! Can't go wrong with Canon In D Major, either

Honorable mention:

 It's only 4 minutes long, but the brief opera set to Dante Allegaris' Vide Cor Meum, written by Hans Zimmer for the movie Hannibal. I think it is an absolutely beautiful, haunting piece that is both ethereal, ghostly and incredibly romantic. 

Beethoven's "Fur Elise" 

 

As well, I'll sometimes have the TV on Galaxie's "Baroque" channel, but I don't always catch the title and composer.

Aram Kachaturian, Gayane Ballet Suite (adagio)

Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 5

I would have to go with this piece. Best is it if you play it quite loudly. To really feel the emotion of the music.

Amen to that. Pure genius.

And, if you're so inclined, you can enjoy it in the comfort of your own home:

Rob's is a more standard configuration for Hauptwerk.

 

Then there's what's possible if you really have the dough. Another home setup:

Not sure if I'm the one you wanted to reply to. Though I appreciate it. I'm not really into the organ music, though my father is.

The post I replied to has disappeared, strangely. It also was about Bach.

Speaking of movie music,, how about,,,,, The Red Violin. 

Strauss' "Death and Transfiguration"

I've got so many favorites, it's hard to choose. I guess my tastes have moved backward in time to early music, but if we're talking classical music, I have to go with Mendelssohn's Scottish Symphony:
